Salah would like to see Egypt clinch their eighth title in the 2017 edition of the Afcon in Gabon.

Egypt beat Morocco in the quarterfinals of the Afcon 2017 on Sunday night. The Egyptians have won the trophy a record seven times.

“We have won seven titles and want to make it eight now,” Salah told

“It would be nice to carry the trophy back to Egypt.

“Most of the players on the team are all very hungry to take the trophy back home,” he added.
