Egypt's World Cup dream is over, admits apologetic Bradley

The American says the World Cup ambition of the seven-time African champions “has become seemingly impossible” after meeting their waterloo in Kumasi
The coach of Egypt Bob Bradley has admitted that the World Cup dream of the Pharaohs is over after a 6-1 thrashing by Ghana on Tuesday.

The former US coach conceded that the Black Stars were too strong for the Pharaohs.

“The World Cup means so much to every country, today we have seen that our World
Cup dream has become seemingly impossible,” Bradley said at a post-match press conference.

“Ghana is a great football nation, the players and the fans are amazing and everything went well for them.”

Bradley added: “I accept the blame and I will say sorry to all Egyptians, we must be proud getting to the second leg despite the heavy defeat.”

The north African giants will host the four-time African champions on November 19 in the second leg play-off for the 2014 World Cup possibly in Cairo.
