captain Knowledge Musona has warned his teammates they need to avoid overly focusing on how to hold Liverpool star Mohamed Salah ignoring the rest of the Egyptian national team.

are set to commence their campaign with facing Zimbabwe in the tournament’s opening game on the 21st of June, at Cairo International Stadium.

The Warriors were drawn with hosts Egypt, DR Congo and Uganda in AFCON’s Group A, and Musona insists the Pharaohs’ are not all about Salah.

“We should not only aim at stopping Mohamed Salah but everyone on the field because if we make that mistake, then we are going to fight against Salah, we will be destroyed by someone we don’t know,” Musona told The Herald.

“We just have to make sure that we are strong in every position and we are ready to fight in every duel and also take the chances that we might have, we are not here to talk, we are here to play, we came here to fight and it’s gonna be a tough game.”

“That is what makes me tick, fighting for my team and my country and I know that every time I play for Zimbabwe, everyone supports me. They have been supporting me since I started playing for the national team, and the best way I can respond is to fight for them.”

“Even if I don’t score, what is important is that I contribute to help my team do well and get a good result, this is what makes me good, I think.”
