CAIRO - Egypt parted company with
national team coach Hassan Shehata on Monday after a draw
against South Africa sent the defending champions to the bottom
of their African Nations Cup qualifying group.
Egypt have not won a match in their group and were all but
eliminated from the competition after Sunday's 0-0 draw.
Samir Zaher, head of the Egyptian federation, said in a
statement that: "the federation has full respect for the
management team over the past six years in terms of
Shehata led Egypt to the last three Nations Cup titles as
well as bringing the team one of its highest FIFA rankings ever.
Egypt were ranked ninth internationally last June but have since
fallen to 36th position.
The federation did not name a successor to Shehata. Egypt
still has two qualifying matches to play against Sierra Leone
