Records

As of 11 October 2015. Players in bold are still active at international level.

On 31 January 2010, Egypt set a new record, not being defeated for 19 consecutive African Cup of Nations matches, since their last match at the 2004 African Cup of Nations. Egypt also won their 9th consecutive match in the ACN, beating Ghana in the 2010 African Cup of Nations final match, and becoming the first team to win three consecutive ACN titles.

Subsequent to leading Egypt to its third consecutive ACN victory under his tenure, Egypt coach Hassan Shehata was offered the role of coaching the Nigeria national football team in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.[35] In February 2010, the EFA agreed to let Shehata take charge of Nigeria in 2010 World Cup only if official request was sent.[36] Ultimately, Shehata did not take the position.
