The AD-DIBA of Egypt was the top scorer in the first event of AFCON back in 1957. He spoiled the opponent’s party, Egypt beat Ethiopia to become the winners of the championship, AD-DIBA was the top scorer and his performance met the Egyptian fervor.
Egypt thrice reached the FIFA WC FINALS , including the 2018 WC, Egypt has been among the top ten of the FIFA global rankings, the first African team to achieve the landmark and with compassion.
Record seven times winner of the AFCON and the runners up of the AFCON2017, Egypt must be graded high to bring the AFCON TROPHY back home yet again in the mega event.
The SALAH factor, will act as an impetus, and the Egyptians just need to up the ante to burst through the opponents.
It won’t be easy as AFCON has always come up with surprises in the form of upset wins and losses.
The 2018 WC performance by the East African soccer team hasn’t been as expected, they lost and lost comprehensively all the three first round games.
May be its time to shift gears towards ultimate glory, AFCON could be the best alternate to share moments of respite, honor and dignity.
Egypt last won the AFCON in 2010, in between they tried to steady the ship by making small inroads as the runners up of the last time event, but the demands and aspirations of the fans shall act as a motivational force to make the stars perform like real heroes.
A history in the making, shall they sustain the pressures of the competitors to become the eighth time winners of AFCON, only the time will tell. And the auspicious moments aren’t too far now.
