The Egyptian Football Association, EFA, has sacked Ehab Galal as coach after just three games in charge of the national team.

Galal, 54, replaced Carlos Queiroz in Aprilafter the Pharaohs failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

But he was dismissed after a shock 2-0 defeat to Ethiopiain a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier and 4-1 friendly loss against South Korea.

EFA board member Hazem Emam said they will look to appoint a foreign coach.

Galal was appointed by Egypt after a season at Cairo-based Pyramids and previously managed several other club sides including Zamalek, El Masry, and Al Ahly Tripoli.

In his first match in charge in June, Egypt claimed a late 1-0 win over Guinea in a Nations Cup qualifier.

But the two losses, both missed by their captain and Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, through injury, proved costly for Galal.
