Salah Predicts Egypt Will Win AFCON 2021

Egypt superstar, Mohamed Salah, believes the team has the quality and capability to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Pharaohs have won the trophy for a record seven times, but Salah has won nothing with his country.

The forward came close to lifting the trophy in 2017, but Egypt lost to Cameroon in the finals.

After another disappointing outing on home soil in 2019, the Pharaohs head to Cameroon 2021, as one of the favourites.

The Liverpool star in reaction via his official Instagram handle, noted that he’s confident the team will win the bi-annual tournament in Cameroon.

Salah wrote (in Arabic) on Instagram: “The road is not easy, but we will fight to come back with the cup. Stay behind us #EncourageEgypt”.

They face Nigeria in their Group D opener next week, before playing Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.
