Egypt coach Shawki Gharib has reportedly been fired following The Pharaohs' Africa Cup qualification failure.
According to media reports, Gharib has been dismissed one year after he took over from American Bob Bradley.
Gharib's future as Pharaohs coach looked very bleak following the record seven-time African champions' failure to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup this week following Wednesday's 2-1 away loss to Tunisia.
The Pharaohs finished third in Group G on 6 points, six points behind Senegal and another seven adrift of Tunisia who also beat them 1-0 in the first leg in Cairo on September 10.
Egypt has now failed to qualify to the Africa Cup for an unprecedented third successive time after dominating the continent with three successive titles from 2006 to 2010.
