Marwan Mohsen: We don’t fear any opponent
“I was definitely very happy to score against Tunisia, especially since the goal was due to our daily tactical training, and also that it was scored by collective efforts,” Mohsen told reporters.
The match represented the Pharaohs’ final warm-up game ahead of the AFCON, which will be held in Gabon between Jan. 14 and Feb. 5.
“Facing Tunisia was the best way to prepare for the competition. The coaching staff and the players are now fully concentrating on the tournament,” he added.
Egypt, who were drawn in Group D, will be facing Ghana, Mali, and Uganda during the group stage. Mohsen says that they do not fear any team, especially that the current generation defeated big teams as Nigeria and Ghana. He affirmed that Egypt can win the title if they put on a strong performance during the group stage.
“Egypt’s group in the tournament is very difficult but we can win the title if we got off to a strong start in the group stage with positive results.
“I am not looking for individual titles…Egypt’s absence from the African championships made the public eager to restore the accomplishments of the golden era,” the 27-year-old added.
The seven-time champions will be participating in the AFCON for the first time since 2010 when they won the tournament for the third time in a row. The Pharaohs will kick off their campaign against Mali on Jan. 17.
