Egypt FA president resigns, coach sacked after Afcon exit

Egypt’s FA President Hany Abou-Rida along with some board members have resigned from their posts following the nation’s exit from the 2019 Afcon.

Abou-Rida also announced that Coach Javier Aguirre and his staff have been relieved of their duties.

Despite stepping down as the FA boss, Abou-Rida will continue in his position as the head of the organizing committee of the tournament.

The Pharaohs who are hosting the tournament were knocked out in the Round of 16 after a 1-0 loss to South Africa on Saturday, thanks to an 85th-minute strike by Thembinkosi Lorch.

The win was Bafana Bafana’s first in the knockout stages since 2000.
