History

Egypt was the first African country to participate in the World Cup when it played in Italy 1934, losing to Hungary 4-2. Egypt has qualified for one World Cup since then, going out in the first round in Italy 1990. They were known as the United Arab Republic national football team when Egypt and Syria joined to form the United Arab Republic from 1958 to 1961 and then until 1970, with Egypt alone making up the UAR. They have played for the Bronze Medal in the Olympic Games twice (1928 and 1964).

On February 2010, Egypt moved to a historic position; the 10th in the FIFA World Ranking, after jumping 14 places with an increase of points by 237 from December 2009[1], being one of the world top 10 national football teams after, Spain, Brazil, Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Germany, France, Argentina and England. Thus being the top African country before Nigeria, which comes at the 15th position. It is not only the highest placing for Egypt[2], but also the second highest ever by an African team, after Nigeria which was placed the fifth in 1994[3].

This notable jump in the Egypt national football team ranking was by virtue of its high performance in the 2010 African Cup of Nations, especially the semi-final match against its rival, Algeria[citation needed], in which Egypt finished the game playing against 8 men.[4][5][6][7] Egypt has finished the tournament winning the cup after winning all the matches with scoring 15 goals and only two goals against, one in the quarter-finals by Cameroon and the other was by Nigeria.

Due to the notable Egyptian performance at the tournament, on February the first, 2010, it has been claimed by Shehata that he has been given the chance to lead Nigeria and Cameroon in the 2010 South Africa World Cup. [8]

In February 2010, the EFA agreed to let Shehata take charge of Nigeria in 2010 World Cup if only official request is sent[9].
