The Egypt FA has thanked Cuper for qualifying them for their first World Cup in 28 years and a second place finish in the 2017 African Cup of Nations.

“We held a meeting after returning from Russia and the entire board decided to say thank you to Cuper and his technical staff,” a statement released by the Egyptian FA reads.

“We appreciate the work from the coach, from reaching the Africa Cup of Nations after three years of absence and taking Egypt to the World Cup after 28 years of absence.”
