After outclassing Malawi 4-0 away, the Pharaohs now top their Group with nine points on level with Guinea, edging closer to reaching the continental competition set to be played in Cote d'Ivoire in January 2024.
“I am very happy with Mohamed Salah performance during the game," the 53-year-old Portuguese tactician told the post-match news conference.
" He is one of the best players in the world but the collective work of the team made me happier.”
On target against Malawi in the reverse game on Friday in Cairo, the Liverpool ace scored again and provided an assist during Tuesday’s win.
“We played a good game and succeeded in converting our chances to goals."
“We were the better side in the two games and we deserved both wins,” the Portuguese tactician concluded.
