Egypt part ways with coach Ehab Galal, in talks for foreign coach

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has parted ways with the head coach of the national men’s team, Ehab Galal after just three games in charge.

Galal had been hired in April following the sack of Carlos Queiroz after the Pharaohs failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup due to defeat against Senegal in the play-offs.

But the 54-year-old was dismissed after a shock 2-0 defeat to Ethiopia in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier followed by a 4-1 friendly loss against South Korea.

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, the Pharaohs edged Guinea 1-0 in a Nations Cup qualifier. But defeats to Ethiopia and South Korea proved costly for Galal.
