Bob Bradley and Egypt finished their World Cup qualifying campaign on Tuesday with their seventh win in eight matches.
They still fell short of reaching Brazil 2014.
Egypt defeated Ghana, 2-1, in Cairo on Tuesday but were eliminated from qualifying after falling 7-3 on aggregate in the two-legged playoff against the Black Stars, who have qualified for their third straight World Cup.
The Pharaohs entered Tuesday’s decisive match with slim hopes of making it to next summer’s tournament after losing 6-1 in Ghana in last month’s first leg, but they mustered up an admirable performance at home to bow out of a challenging qualifying campaign with a victory.
Egypt, which took a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute but did not find a second until late in the second half, finishes its qualifying campaign under Bradley with a 7-1-0 record.
What do you think of Bradley and Egypt’s elimination from qualifying? What do you think is next for Bradley? Would you rather see the U.S. Men’s National Team face or avoid Ghana next summer?
