thumbnail Hello,

The American coach has showered praises on the Pharaohs following their win over Ghana in the second-leg World Cup play-off on Tuesday

Egypt coach Bob Bradley has patted his team on the back after an impressive performance that gave them a 2-1 win over Ghana in Cairo on Tuesday.

Though the win was not enough to secure the Pharaohs a 2014 World Cup ticket, the American feels his charges lived up to expectation.

“The players showed to all of Africa that they are good players with their performance in this match and I'm proud of them,” Bradley opined.

“In the World Cup qualifiers, we played eight matches, won seven and lost only one but that was not enough to go to Brazil," he added. "We did our best but the first match made it an almost impossible task for us.”

The return leg in Cairo could be Bradley's last game with the seven-time Africa champions and has been linked to some clubs in the Major League Soccer.
