Egypt sack coach after disappointing draw vs Gabon, ZIFA dangles with Loga

Egypt’s FA has sacked coach Hossam El Badry a day after Sunday’s World Cup qualifying draw in Gabon.

The Pharaohs salvaged a 1-1 draw when equalizing in the last.

El Badry has been let go despite not losing one of his 10 games in charge.

Egypt are also top of Group F with four points.

El Badry was named as Egypt’s head coach after his predecessor; Javier Aguire was sacked following a poor display on home soil when hosting the 2019 African Cup of Nation.

Local reports claim that the team’s technical director could be named interim coach to lead the team through the rest of the World Cup qualifiers until the appointment of a new coach.

This comes amid calls for under-fire Zimbabwe Warriors coach, Zdravko Logarusic to be axed after Zimbabwe suffered a last-gasp collapse to lose to Ethiopia in a 2022 World Cup qualifier.

Despite the dismal performance, Loga insists the team tried its best and they didn’t disappoint the nation.

“We tried our best at the moment and with some individual mistakes and some wrong refereeing decisions we lost the game but I think we didn’t disappoint with the game, we didn’t disappoint Zimbabwean supporters, sometimes you don’t deserve to lose but you lose,” the coach said after the game.
