After the victory against Senegal, the Egyptian manager Carlos Queiroz recalled his CV to say that he is one of the best coaches in the world, this after some uncomfortable questions from journalists.
But first, the Portuguese coach praised his team’s performance: “I don’t see any reason to be upset or sad. We have just beaten the African champion. (…) In the return match, we will defend our advantage with everything,” he said, quoted by King Fut.
“I have 44 years of experience as a coach and more than 2,000 games at international level. I am the only coach to have taken four countries to the World Cup and I am among the ten best coaches in the world” , he added later.
Egypt, it must be emphasized, beat Senegal in the first leg of the 2022 World Cup play-offs, 1-0.
