HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hector Cuper was sacked as manager of Uzbekistan on Monday, becoming the first coaching casualty of the Asian qualifying campaign for the 2022 World Cup.

Cuper, who was appointed in August last year and took the country to the last 16 at January's Asian Cup, led his side to a surprise 2-0 defeat by Palestine in the opening qualifying match for the 2022 finals in Qatar last month.

The 63-year-old previously qualified Egypt for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia and also led Valencia to back-to-back appearances in the Champions League final in 2000 and 2001. The Central Asian nation were drawn in Group D of Asia's qualifying tournament alongside Palestine, Singapore, Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
