The Most Memorable Game for Salah

The result of the match was crucial. Because Egypt was finally able to win tickets to Russia 2018.
“There are no words to describe how I feel about people’s positive comments towards me or be a reason for their hopes. Today, if I die, it will be after achieving a lot of things I wanted to achieve,” he told Egypt TV and DMC . .
“People don’t realize how happy I was when I came to play for the national team, it’s an honor for me to wear the national team uniform.”
