2022 World Cup qualifiers: Egypt sack coach El Badry after Gabon draw

A last-gasp effort from Mostafa Mohamed rescued a point for the Pharoahs who struggled to dominate Sunday's game in Franceville

The Egyptian Football Association has sacked national team head coach Hossam El Badry after their 1-1 draw with Gabon in a 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying match on Sunday.

His dismissal was announced a day after the Pharaohs struggled to grab a point in Franceville, thanks to Mostafa Mohamed’s 90th-minute strike that cancelled out Jim Allevinah’s opener for Gabon.

Despite the dropped points, Egypt remain at the top of Group F with four points after two matches, pending the outcome of Angola and Libya's encounter on Tuesday.
