On Rating Of AFCON 2019 So Far
It’s a fantastic atmosphere. Egypt is a good country to be in . The people here love football, and the the games are going very well.

They (Guinea) threatened our defence , but I think we had the more chances to score than them.
On Who Will Win AFCON 2019 Title
Normally, I don’t like to call it at this stage. I always want the group games to finish, then we will know who is who, and who can make it up there. For now, the race is open. I don’t really know who is the strongest – everybody is panicking because they just played first or second game. When the group phase is over , we can see.
