Egypt manager, Carlos Queiroz has announced his departure from the Egyptian national team after failing to reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with the squad, Newspremises has learnt.

The Pharaohs were defeated 3-1 on penalties to Senegal in the World Cup play-off qualifier in Dakar on Tuesday evening March 29, after Mohamed Salah, Ahmed Sayed Zizo, and Mostafa Mohamed missed Egypt’s penalties in the shootout.

The match ended 1-0 to Senegal after 120 minutes and 1-1 on aggregate just weeks after Senegal beat Egypt on penalties in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations.
