Our prediction for this match:
Borg El Arab Stadium will host Tuesday’s friendly between Egypt and Liberia, the two African sides. Egypt will be looking to build on a comfortable 3-0 win over Niger, and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash. A man to watch in Rui Vitoria’s team will be Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah, who scored a brace against Niger. Ahmed El Fotouh and Trezegeut will be pushing for the start as they started from the bench in the previous warm-up game.
Liberia, on the other hand, did not play an important role in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, with the team failing to make it to the finals and, as a result, they are seen as big underdogs in this game. The Lone Stars failed to score in the previous three meetings with Egypt; therefore, anything but a routine win for the home side will be a major surprise.
Highlighted Player (Mohamed Salah):
Mohamed Salah is considered one of the best African players. Salah began his senior career at El Mokawloon, scoring 11 goals in 41 league appearances for the club and in 2012 he moved to Europe, signing a four-year deal with Swiss side Basel.
The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of £11 million. Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina.
After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone. It has to be noted that he was named Roma’s player of the season (2015/2016).
