FIFA World Cup: Russia 2018

Cuper Casts Doubt over Egypt Future as El-Hadary Issues Apology

Egypt national team head coach Hector Cuper has cast doubt over his future as coach of the Pharaohs following their exit from the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Cuper told journalists in a post-match press conference that if the Egyptian Football Association were  not happy with the results they were free to take action.

“If the EFA members don’t want me to stay and aren’t happy with the results, they are completely free,” he said.

“Everything is possible after the World Cup,” he added.

The 62-year-old Argentine was also quick to praise their opponents who he described as a very good team.

“The Russian national team showed that they’re a strong team and I don’t know which stage they’ll reach,” he adds.

Captain, Essam El-Hadary apologized to the Egyptian public shortly after the team’s 3-1 loss at the hands of Russia which meant they were booted out of the competition.

“After missing out for 28 years, we wanted to do better at the World Cup, and therefore I apologize to all the Egyptian fans,” he said.

El-Hadary has missed the two group stage matches but is expected to start against Saudi Arabia on June 25th and make history as the oldest player to feature in a FIFA World Cup match.
