The Pharaohs lock horns with Cameroon in a re-match of the 2017 final, which the Indomitable Lions won 2-1 after coming from a goal down.

"We must keep our feet on the ground because we cannot think too far ahead yet," Liverpool talisman Salah told the BBC on Tuesday.

"We have to prepare for the big match against Cameroon and not start making dreams about the final before the semi-final."

Salah was instrumental in Egypt's 2-1 victory over Morocco in the Nations Cup quarters, scoring a second-half equaliser before setting up Mahmoud Trezeguet for the winner in extra time.

He has two goals to his name in the tournament, having also netted the winner in the 1-0 group-stage victory over Guinea-Bissau.
