Egypt has sacked head coach, Javier Aguirre following their shocking elimination in the round of 16 of the African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The Pharaohs last-16 exit at the Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday proved costly for the Mexican manager and his staff.

Aguirre's were left stunned on Saturday as the AFCON hosts lost 1-0 to Bafana Bafana in Cairo.

The Pharaohs failed to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2004.

Afterwards, Egyptian Football Association (EFA) president Hany Abou-Rida announced his resignation and confirmed the departure of the entire technical and administrative staff.

Despite his resignation, Abou-Rida - who also called for members of the board to step down - said he will continue in his position as head of the organising committee of the 2019 AFCON.
