Hull: Egypt striker thanks fans after Cup exit

Egypt missed out on representing Africa at next year's finals in Brazil following the Pharoahs' 2-1 home win against Ghana in the World Cup playoff on Tuesday.
Gedo scored Egypt's second goal after coming on as a first-half substitute in Cairo but, despite the victory, Egypt again failed to qualify for the first time since 1990 as they lost 6-1 in the first-leg in Kumasi.

"Thanks to the crowd that supported us until the final whistle. The Kumasi game decided the qualification," the 29-year-old striker Tweeted after the game.
"All respect to Bradley and his staff."
The 55-year-old American coach, who was hired in November 2011, has now come to the end of his spell with Egypt, as his contract expired at the end of the qualifiers.
