African football powerhouse Egypt have sent a message to the rest of Africa that the sleeping giants are back to the top of African football.
Egypt who have won the most Africa Cup of Nations titles (7) failed to qualify for the last three editions of the tournament in 2012, 2013 and 2015 but Argentine coach Hector Cuper led them to qualify for Gabon 2017.
According to Osama the North Africa country is back at the very top of African football.
“We want to send a message to Africa, to know that we are back to compete in the advanced rounds of all African tournaments, either through the National team or clubs like Zamalek in the CAF Champions League final,” he concluded.
