Ahead of the commencement of AFCON, the Egypt king is clearly fired up to try and create history for the most successful team in the competition’s history but not a trophy that he has won himself.

The Liverpool winger has thus promised Egyptian fans that the team will fight in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon to bring home an eighth African cup as he joined national team training camp on Wednesday.
