Mohamed Salah has refused to take sole credit for his goal against Burkina Faso last night, explaining that it was down to great teamwork.
The Roma man scored Egypt’s goal in their 1-1 draw with Burkina Faso in the first semifinal of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The North Africans won the post-match penalty shootout 4-3 and are through to Sunday’s final, where they will meet the winner of tonight’s match between Cameroon and Ghana.
“I didn’t score the goal alone. It was the result of team effort starting from [Ahmed] Elmohamady, Abdallah Said and ending with [Mahmoud] Kahraba, who set me up perfectly,” Salah told BeIN Sports satellite channel after the game.
“I wish all the injured players would be ready for the final as we need everyone’s efforts,” Salah added.
Egypt are looking to win a record-extending eighth AFCON crown.
