Forget Fergie time, how about (Bob) Bradley time?

By Nicholas Rosano

Former US men's national team coach Bob Bradley has enjoyed a wildly successful start to his career in charge of Egypt's national team, winning the hearts of the Egyptian people and plenty of games.

Things looked a little less rosy, though, in Bradley's second World Cup qualifier, away to Guinea. Alhassane Bangoura netted an improbable equalizer for the 10-man West African side in the 88th minute, and Egypt looked headed for a tie that would've made the competition for a coveted spot in the final round of qualifying all that much difficult.

Egypt forward Mohamed Salah had other ideas though and scored in the fifth minute of stoppage time to hand Egypt a 3-2 win and put them firmly on top of their group.

It's still a long road to the World Cup for The Pharaohs – they still have four more group games, and if they keep it up, they'll face a do-or-die two-legged playoff to get to Brazil. Still, Guinea away is at least on paper the most dificult task Bradley's men will face until that playoff, and though they are not in action again until March 2013, they will certainly be feeling good about their chances.

Can Bradley take Egypt to the World Cup? If both Egypt and the US make it, how cool would it be to see the ex-US coach take on his former side? Weigh in with your comments beow.
