Had a terrible build up at a WC and then advanced out of their WC group?

The reason I ask is Egypt is bad. Really bad. This is our worst team since 2013 and worst generation since the early 2000s.

We're winless in 2018 with 3 losses and 2 draws to our name. We have scored twice and conceded 7. None of this matters at the WC but what troubles me is how poor our players are. Outside of Salah we don't have a single goal scoring threat and our midfield is embarrassingly bad. Other than Hegazy, our defense sucks and due to lack of options, grandpa El Hadary might be our starter at the tender age of 45.

Give me some hope CE. Has an African team ever been this bad and then gone on to do damage at the WC?

Realistically we're going to end up with 1-3 points in Russia.

Nigeria has advanced 3 out of 5 times and we've always had sloppy build ups.

Really uphill for Egypt now.Saudi 0-5 down, cannot possibly be this bad on Monday. Russia no longer under as much pressure.

I think Egypt should be happy to qualify for the WC

The two times Nigeria failed to make it out of the group we lost our opening games to Argentina

Uruguay first is just as tough.

Egypt will have to find a way to beat the hosts and beat Saudi Arabia by 5 or more.

Spain lost its first game in 2010.

1994 & 2014 were arguably not sloppy with the build ups.

Egypt will stuggle in this group. Don Putin will ensure Russia gets out by any means necessary.

Yes. Cameroon @ Italia 1990, even had a terrible Nations Cup. Ghana @ SA 2010 is close but they had a fair Nations Cup.

Egypt can still qualify from the group..... if

Saudi Arabia beat Uruguay 2-0
Russia beat Uruguay 2-0
Egypt then beat Saudi Arabia 5-0

The writing was on the wall long before the WC. Thank God I had the foresight to sell my Saudi game tickets and recoup my money a month before the WC.
