Russia 2018 Fall Out: Hector Cuper bows out

As highly expected, Egypt coach Hector Cuper has left the team following their elimination from the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Egypt Football Association said they were not preparing any contract renewal for the Argentine coach who came on board in 2015.

The Pharaohs, who were one of the best teams during the qualifiers in Africa zone, could not progress from the group stage of the Mundial, losing all three matches.

Cuper was the man who led the North Africans to finish second at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, followed by a qualification to the World Cup after 28 years of absence.

However, he had faced criticisms from local pundits for his choice of defenders during their three outings at the 2018 World Cup, from which they conceded six goals.

The FA will hold a press conference on Wednesday to announce ‘important decisions’, according to a communiqué.
