Muhammad Salah has revealed his favourite team to win the African Cup of Nations in 2021.
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah believes Egypt will win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, which will be hosted by the country.
In an interview with ESPN, the Egyptian captain stated that the Pharaohs will give everything they had to win the AFCON trophy in Cameroon in 2020.
Salah made this statement after his team qualified for the AFCON quarter-finals under his leadership.
Egypt overcame Ivory Coast 5-4 in a penalty shootout in the AFCON round of 16 match this week to advance to the last eight of the championship.
Spain will now face Morocco in the AFCON last-eight on Sunday, with Carlos Queiroz's side leading the way.
“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.”
