Egypt national team .. History of the African Nations Cup
The former Egyptian football star, Mohamed Aboutrika, says that the players of the teams facing Egypt in the African Nations Cup were “terrified” by the players of the “Pharaohs” team.
And he added – in his statements last month – that in the 2008 final against Cameroon, the former star, Samuel Eto’o, the current president of the Cameroon Football Federation, was “the only one who was speaking in the tunnel leading to the match, while the rest of the players were in complete silence from the intensity of terror because the national team Cameroon had lost in the group stage by four.
