AFCON 2021: ‘Egypt Will Do Everything Possible To Beat Nigeria’  –Salah

Mohamed Salah has said the Pharoahs of Egypt will do everything possible to overcome the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Both African giants will take to the field in Garoua in their Group D opener on Tuesday.


The last time both teams met at the AFCON was the 2010 edition in Angola with the Egyptians winning 3-1.

It was Egypt’s second ever win against the Eagles at AFCON while the three-time champions have triumphed on four occasions.

And speaking in Monday’s pre-match presser, Salah said:”We are not the favorites to win the Africa Cup of Nations, but we will do our best to reclaim the title.

“I am only one of eleven players that represent Egypt. We will do everything we can to come on top in tomorrow’s match and in the tournament as a whole.

“We have to work very hard to live up to our expectations, playing every game as a team to win.

“I am yet to win my first title with Egypt, it would be an honor to win the AFCON, it’s been ten years since I started representing my country, and lifting the trophy would mean a lot to me.”

    Is this not the same Ghana that were whitewashed 3 nil by Algeria? They are giving Morocco a hard time. They look the better side, in my opinion.
    15 minutes to go, and it’s still goalless. Let’s see how the game ends.

    Morocco’s first real chance = GOAL!
    A moment of indecision in the Ghana box, and Morocco pounce.
