Egypt manager, president quit after AFCON exit

Javier Aguirre
Javier Aguirre was fired after Egypt's surprise round of 16 exit at the hands of South Africa.

Egypt coach Javier Aguirre became the first casualty of the Africa Cup of Nations as he was sacked just hours after the hosts were bundled out of the tournament by South Africa in the round of 16.

Hosts Egypt lost 1-0 to an 85th minute goal from Thembinkosi Lorch on Saturday at the end of a lacklustre display in which their talisman Mohamed Salah looked out of sorts and they produced few goal-scoring chances.

South Africa, who had lost two of their three group games yet crept into the knockout stages, showed great improvement and were the more enterprising team, leaving 70,000 partisan fans at the Cairo International Stadium stunned.

Egypt's Mohamed Salah curled in a free kick, his second goal of this year's Africa Cup of Nations, to set them on the way to a 2-0 win over Uganda on Sunday as they topped their group while their opponents joined them in the last 16.

Ahmed Elmohamady was also on target as Egypt, who had already qualified, completed Group A with a 100 percent record in their three games and no goals conceded, while Uganda still qualified for the knockout stages for only the second time and the first since 1978.

Egypt hopes Mo Salah can deliver AFCON though his hometown, Nagrig, is cheering just a little louder

With 22 goals and eight assists for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah dispelled any notion he was a one-season wonder this Premier League season.
Everywhere you look in Nagrig, you see things to remind you of their most famous export, Mohamed Salah.

NAGRIG, Egypt -- Mrs. Amene sits on a step outside the youth centre in Nagrig. Looking over the dusty football field out front, she remembers one particular player who played there two decades ago.

"Of course I saw him play here," she says. "He was a respectable child. No matter what, I can say nothing bad about Mohamed Salah."

These days the youth centre bears Salah's name and on the side facing the pitch, there's a near-lifelike mural displaying his face and red-tracksuit-wearing upper body. Fewer...

Egypt forward Mohamed Salah scored his first goal of this year's Africa Cup of Nations to help the hosts to a 2-0 win over Democratic Republic of Congo on Wednesday which guaranteed them a place in the round of 16.

Ahmed Elmohamady broke the deadlock in the 25th minute, turning the ball in following a corner, before Salah netted a clinically-taken goal two minutes before half-time, sparking delirious celebrations at the Cairo International Stadium.

The result was harsh on the Congolese who twice...
