Egypt’s Mohamed Salah has said they need to improve on their finishing touch if they hope to make it to the later stages at the on-going 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The AS Roma striker in Italy told MTNFootball.com that they are creating so many scoring chances, but failing to convert them.
“We need to fix this problem of scoring because you cannot win matches when you don’t score,” said Salah.
Egypt, who have won the Afcon title a record seven times, started their campaign with a goalless draw against Mali before they scored late to beat Uganda Cranes 1-0 on Saturday.
Salah said they will have to be at their best when they face table leaders Ghana in the last Group D match on Wednesday.
“It is unfortunate the pitch in Port Gentil is not very good, but we need to try and work as a team to get another win to top the group,” he added.
Ahmed Fathi, a defender with the team said he also expects the team to step up as the tournament gets to the later stages.
“We need to try and become better in all departments because we are reaching a level where there is no room for mistakes,” concluded the defender.
