Egypt coach, Shawky Gharib has come out to say that he still believes in the team’s chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Tokyo 2020 football tournament. He recently revealed this despite the recent loss to Argentina hours ago.
According to him, he is disappointed with the defeat at this stage of the competition and it was clearly down to his boys losing focus during the game.
He added that football is a game of chances, and Egypt just didn’t do enough to convert the ones they created.
His words, “When an Egyptian player loses focus, it becomes a problem. Argentina scored their only dangerous chance of the game.”
“This is football, you have to take your chances. We are still working, and we have a chance to qualify, we haven’t lost hope.”
