Egyptian Football Federation has on Wednesday appointed Carlos Queiroz as the new coach following the sacking of Hossam El-Badry.
His appointment came after an unconvincing start to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup under Hossam El-Badry supervision. As a result, the Portuguese will take over from El-Badry, who was dismissed Monday in the wake of a 1-1 draw in Gabon.
The experienced 68-year-old previously managed Real Madrid (2003-04), Iran (2011-19), Colombia (2019-20), and his native Portugal in two different stints (1991-93 and 2008-10).
The African giants are desperately seeking to qualify for a second consecutive FIFA World Cup taking place in Qatar next.
The EFF said Queiroz, a former Manchester United assistant and Real Madrid manager, would be supported by Diaa El-Sayed and long-time former national team goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary on his coaching staff.
