Roma midfielder Michael Bradley has backed his father to guide Egypt to the 2014 World Cup at the expense of Ghana.
Bob Bradley is on the verge of qualifying the North African country to the World Cup for the first time since 1990.
The American trainer is chasing a second successive appearance at the global showpiece after guiding the USA to the 2010 finals in South Africa.
And the 26-year-old Roma midfielder has thrown his support behind his father to make history.
“If the first game were in Cairo, I’d be there for sure. Ghana might be a little bit more difficult to get to, but I’ll be watching and cheering like every other Egyptian that day,” he told the BBC
”I am incredibly proud of my Dad and of my mother — who is there with him — and their commitment to finishing what he started. He went there with the idea, with the dream, of taking Egypt to the World Cup.
“In the midst of all the instability in their country, in the midst of the revolution, in the midst of massacres, in the midst of so much trouble in their country, they have managed to keep a group of guys focused and committed on really, the dream of the entire country.
“I think it’s in these ways, in these moments, that we’re all able to see how powerful football is. I mean, a country like that, with so much turmoil, maybe the only thing that the Egyptians can agree on is their love and support for the national team and how the dream is to see them back in a World Cup.”
The Black Stars will host the first leg in Kumasi on Tuesday October 15 before the return encounter in Cairo on November 19.
