Egypt kick Mido out

2006-02-08 13:58
Cairo - Egypt striker Mido was on Wednesday banned for six months from the national team after his extraordinary touchline confrontation with manager Hassan Shehata in Tuesday's African Nations Cup semi-final against Senegal.

The Tottenham forward was furious at being taken off with 11 minutes of the match to go, and in front of 74 000 fans made his feelings known in no uncertain terms to Shehata.

Mido's suspension - which rules him out of Friday's final against Ivory Coast - was announced by Samir Zaher, president of the Egypt football federation, after a meeting on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old was also told to leave Egypt's training camp.
