FIFA sends emergency team to run Egyptian FA

Hosts Egypt were eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations by South Africa in the round of 16 this summer.

Rocked by the surprise early exit of a national team featuring Mohamed Salah as hosts of the Africa Cup of Nations last month, Egyptian football is getting an emergency management team from FIFA.

Football's world body says it appointed a panel of four men and one woman to manage the Egypt football federation until fresh elections are held within one year.

Egypt's round-of-16 loss against South Africa caused coach Javier Aguirre and his staff to be fired before federation president Hany Abo Rida and other board members resigned.

Abo Rida remains on FIFA's ruling committee, where he has represented Africa for 10 years.

The Egypt federation is getting millions of dollars from FIFA for a project in Cairo to build a new headquarters and housing base for national teams.
