Egypt coach Javier Aguirre has become the first casualty of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
He was sacked just hours after the hosts were bundled out of the tournament by South Africa in the round of Sixteen on Saturday in Cairo.
Egypt Football Association president Hany Abo Rida announced the firing of the Mexican coach.
Abo Rida also announced his own resignation, less than three hours after the game as a stunning host nation digested the defeat.
He also called on his board members to step down, calling his resignation a “moral obligation.
Aguirre said that he took sole responsibility but was proud of all of his players.
