Egypt's Amr Warda has expressed the national team’s frustration after crashing out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Pharaohs have failed to bag a single point in Group A so far after falling to Uruguay and Russia, but will finish their group stage campaign against Saudi Arabia on Monday.
Egypt’s campaign took a massive hit when they lost 3-1 to Russia on Tuesday and their exit was confirmed when the Saudis suffered a 1-0 defeat to Uruguay on Wednesday.
The Pharaohs still have a game left to play against the Saudis as both teams have zero points after two games in Group A.
“All national team players dreamed of playing in the World Cup since they were young. We have worked really hard to get to where we are right now,” Warda told ON Sport.
“The traveling fans made us feel playing at home. We really wanted to make them proud but unfortunately we were not able to do that.
“I hope we improve in the future. We are now fully focused on our game against Saudi Arabia. We’ll not settle for anything other than a win against them.
“I will be looking at offers and decide my future after our game against Saudi Arabia.”
