“We are fighting on multiple fronts. There is of course the World Cup qualifiers and now it’s AFCON which is a very important tournament. We will do our best to represent Egypt in the best way possible.”

Players to watch:

Mohamed Salah (29) Forward, Liverpool (England)

Mohamed Elshenawy (32) Goalkeeper, Al Ahly (Egypt)

Ahmed Hegazi (30) Defender, Al Ittihad (Saudi Arabia)

The highest record winners of the tournament still look good enough to go all the way this time, parading players that have gained global appraisal and a team that is formidable, at least on paper.

Egypt’s first challenge in the tournament will be against Nigeria, another appreciable side.
