Salah leads Egypt to semi-finals of Africa Cup of Nations

Superstar Mohamed Salah can still hope for his first title with the Egyptian national football team. The Liverpool striker led the record winners to the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations with a goal and an assist.

Egypt beat Morocco 2-1 (1-1, 0-1) after extra time and now meet hosts Cameroon in the semi-finals.

Salah equalized in the 53rd minute with his second goal of the tournament after Morocco took the lead early on thanks to a penalty kick from Sofiane Boufal (6th). In extra time, the 29-year-old set the ball perfectly for Trezeguet after a solo down the right side, who only had to push the ball into the goal (100′).

Salah has been denied a title in his two previous participations in the continental tournament, and the scorer did not get past the preliminary round with Egypt at the 2018 World Cup either. Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp will have to wait for his two top strikers. Sadio Mané was also in action with Senegal against Equatorial Guinea in the evening.
