Egypt forward, Mohamed Salah believes the Pharaohs are capable of winning the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Recall that Egypt defeated Ivory Coast 5-4 on penalty shootouts in the round of 16 and will face Morocco in the Quarter-final.
However, Salah said the Pharaohs would give everything to win the 2021 AFCON trophy in Cameroon.
“Of course, I want to win something with the national team. It is my country, which I love the most. This trophy for me would be completely different, would be the closest to my heart,” Salah said at his post-match press conference after Egypt defeated Ivory Coast on Wednesday.
“We were close before to win this African Cup [in 2017], we gave it everything, but we were not lucky to win it. But it is ok, now we’re here in the new one.
“We have to fight for it, we’ve to give everything to win it and I am sure the players have the same feeling.”
