Mohamed Salah: It’s my best moment so far
Egypt international Mohamed Salah has described winning the Best Arab Player in 2016 as his best moment so far, adding that the World Cup qualifying is his dream.
The 24-year-old was crowned the best Arab player after scoring 18 goals for Roma in 2016, and helping the Egyptian national team to qualify for the 2017 AFCON in Gabon, beating the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Islam Slimani, and Mehdi Benatia.
“I want to thank the organizers for this fantastic organization,” Salah opened his speech at the Globe Soccer Awards ceremony.
“I think so far this my best moment. I scored many goals for my club and for the national team, but this is my best moment,” the Egyptian added.
The Roma winger was asked about the Pharaohs’ World Cup qualifying campaign after their two victories against Congo and Ghana, but Salah responded by saying “there is still a long way to go”.
“I think we have done well. We have six points and we are first in the group, but there is still a long way to go,” Salah said.
“I hope we qualify for the World Cup because it’s a dream for us, and we have to work hard for it,” he concluded.
Mohamed Salah will hope to replicate that form for Egypt in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations next January after he was called up by Egypt manager Héctor Cúper to represent the Pharaohs in Gabon.
