The Egyptian national team celebrated Mohamed Salah reaching his 50th goal in his shirt, after his contribution to the 2-0 victory over Malawi in the African Cup of Football qualifiers on Friday.
On Saturday, the Egyptian Football Association published, on social media, pictures during the team’s celebration in its camp in Cairo, with Salah scoring his 50th goal in 86 matches with the national team, in addition to scoring 129 goals with Liverpool to become the club’s historic scorer in the English Premier League earlier this month.
Salah, 30, scored Egypt’s first goal against Malawi in Cairo and is preparing to face Malawi again on Tuesday.
And I took pictures of Salah, who led Egypt to qualify for the 2018 World Cup for the first time in 28 years, with his colleagues and coach Roy Vittoria, while he was holding a shirt bearing the number 50, and a model of a shoe kicking a ball with No. 129 on it during a “surprise party,” as mentioned by the Egyptian Federation.
Hossam Hassan remains the historical top scorer for the Egyptian national team, with 68 goals.
