Shawky Gharib sacked by Egypt after Nations Cup failure

Shawky Garib

Egypt have dismissed coach Shawky Gharib after he failed to qualify the team for next year's Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

The Pharaohs missed out on the 2015 finals when a 2-1 defeat in Tunisia on Wednesday left them out of contention in third in Group G.

Gharib, 55, who won the tournament as a player in 1986, was appointed in 2013.

Egypt have won the Nations Cup seven times, including three consecutive titles in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
