Egypt coach Bob Bradley was satisfied with the performance of the new players he introduced to the team in the wake of Friday’s win over Mozambique.
Despite an average display against the African minnows, Egypt were off to a winning start in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, with Ahmed Temsah and Ashour Al-Taqui making their debuts.
“I think that for Temsah, Mohamed Al-Nenni and Mohamed Salah, the first World Cup qualifier is very important,” Bradley said after the 2-0 win in Alexandria.
“And I think they handled this game and this moment very well. This is a big step for young players.
“We will always be looking for other possibilities but we give credit to the players that were involved because we think they are improving.”
Egypt’s next qualifier will be against Guinea on the 10th of June.
