Egypt World Cup 2018 Kits
Mohamed Salah, the Premier League’s top player this season. The former Roma star when from a pretty well-known player to a household name with his amazing performances for Liverpool this season, scoring over 40 goals and guiding the team to the Champions League final. He’s far and away the team’s best player and will be one of the most talked about stars entering the tournament. He’s become a prolific goalscorer and potential Ballon d’Or contender who could be alongside Cristiano Ronalo and Lionel Messi at the next gala.
Player to watch
Omar Gaber. The 26-year-old right back and midfielder is currently on loan at MLS side Los Angeles FC from Swiss giants Basel. He’s been capped over 20 times for Egypt and is a player of quality. He’s got speed to get down the flank and could be a big piece of what Egypt tries to do on the counter-attack.
