VIDEO – “We Must Go” The Bob Bradley in Egypt Story

After getting unceremoniously shelved by the U.S. Soccer Federation following the 4-2 Gold Cup loss to Mexico last year, Bob Bradley was off to Egypt to began anew. Egypt's first American national team coach (the continent's?) would assume the a side with a mixed history of success. The Pharaohs have won seven African Cup of Nations, but hadn't qualified for the World Cup since 1990.

If taking over the position during revolutionary times in Egypt wasn't difficult enough, mere months after assuming his role, the nation was rocked by the tragic deaths of 74 people at a soccer match in Port Said, plunging Bradley into the middle of a political and social firestorm.

Copper Pot Pictures (the makers of the 2012 Kicking and Screening premiered documentary on Kei Kamara) followed Bradley through the tumultuous first months of his reign in Egypt. Listen to the interview with the makers of the doc on the “Best Soccer Show” (starts about the 15 minute mark). The filming is expected to follow Bradley through the 2014 World Cup Qualifying stages to Brazil.

(H/T to the always amazing “The Offside Rules” for the trailer).
