Egypt have fired coach Shawky Gharib following the team’s failure to clinch ticket to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
The Pharaoh suffered a 2-1 defeat in Tunisia on Wednesday to finish third in Group G and miss out on next year’s finals.
Gharib, 55, was appointed in 2013. He won the tournament as a player in 1986.
Egypt have won the Nations Cup seven times, including three on the trot in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
