AFCON Final Loss: Salah vow to take revenge on Senegal

Access Bank

Egypt captain, Mohamed Salah, on Sunday, conveyed a rallying cry to his teammates after they were beaten by Senegal on penalties in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations final.

Salah asked his countrymen to “take revenge” on the Teranga Lions in March, when they meet again in the 2022 World Cup playoffs.

The Pharaohs lost in penalties after the two teams drew 0-0 north of 120 minutes.

Salah was penciled down to take Egypt’s fifth spot-kick, yet never found the opportunity to move forward, after his Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane scored the crucial penalty.

In the changing area after the match, Salah addressed his emotional colleagues.

“We played four matches all 120 minutes in about 12 days.

“But it’s in the past now, we have the games against them next month and inshallah we will take revenge on them,” he said.

Egypt play Senegal more than two legs in the World Cup African playoffs toward the finish of the following month.

The first leg will occur in Cairo on March 23, preceding the second leg in Dakar on March 29.
