. Egypt experienced an awful start in the World Cup qualifiers that led to the sacking of their former head coach.

The Egyptian football federation has announced that Queiroz, a former Manchester United assistant, and Real Madrid manager is going to have Diaa El-Sayed and long-time former national team goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary, help him as his coaching staff.

El-Badry was dismissed after Egypt’s 1-1 draw against Gabon on Monday, and the Portuguese manager took over the position on Wednesday,

The 68-year-old head coach has been working at the international level for years as he took Portugal to World Cup 2010 and Iran in 2014 and 2018 World Cups.

Egypt has not been in the best form recently, and their disappointing performance against Gabon almost cost them the three points, although they managed to pick one point 90th-minute equalizer and that was after their hardly earned 1-0 victory over Angola in their opening match in the World Cup qualifying and these disappointing performances made the supporters criticize the team.

Now the team stands second on the table behind Libya, and they are going to face Libya in a decisive doubleheader in October in a situation that only the first teams of each group reach the next stage.
