Ladies and gentlemen, the Egyptian King is coming home. Mo Salah is returning to the land of the Pharoahs with one goal in mind; to ensure the highly coveted AFCON trophy stays in the host nation.
Indeed, the Liverpool goal-scoring machine has propelled Anfield to the Champions League final, and it is no surprise that he plans to do the same in this our glorious motherland.
To say that Mo Salah has been exemplary this season would be an understatement. He has been the cog that has guided Liverpool to glorious heights.
His attacking mindset, coupled with electrifying pace and a deadly left foot will have defenders in a pensive state as they devise ways to prevent the Egyptian King from netting a number in this tournament.
But what makes Mo Salah so deadly?
The Liverpool forward hs an unprecedented air of focus about him. He is the type of player to sweat it out until the end. And he won’t hang in the towel until he has found his name on the scoresheet.
This is one of the reasons why he managed to get 23 goals this season that saw him share the golden boot with African counterparts Sadio Mane and Aubameyang.
At the forefront of attack, Salah will be aided by the versatile Morwan Mohsen and Ahmed Ali to deliver explosive blows that will see the hosts chase the gold trophy all the way to the end.
Indeed, one has to be crazy not to consider Egypt as the fan-favorites in the competition. It’s a given that the hosts will make it to the final in front of millions of home fans!
