What is The National Sports of Egypt?
Football is by far the most popular sport in Egypt and the Egyptian national football team called the “Pharaohs” has taken home the African Cup of Nations a total of seven times which includes a three-peat performance in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
Without a doubt, this is why they are considered as the most successful among the African national teams and one of the few African national teams that reached a single-digit ranking in FIFA (9th). Football is not the only popular sport in Egypt though. They also love playing tennis and squash.
