Egypt FA chief quits

The president of the Egyptian Football Association Hani Abou Rida resigned late Saturday and “sacked” his technical team after the hosts’ shock elimination from the African Cup of Nations.

The decision had been “a moral obligation” said the Egyptian FA in a statement after “disappointing Egypt’s supporters” in a 1-0 defeat to South Africa, adding that all board members had been invited to resign.

Saturday’s match saw rank outsiders South Africa stun the record seven-time African champions who were among the favourites to win the tournament.
