Egypt’s international and Liverpool FC star Mohamed Salah pledged to join the Egyptian national football team during its camp in March, where the team will witness their first confrontations in the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup. During the session, Salah said he was looking to participate with the national team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, in addition to re-team to compete for the African Cup of Nations to be held in Cameroon in 2021. Salah’s issues with the EFA stretch back to before the World Cup in June 2018, when the association used Salah’s photo on the national team airplane without his permission. In addition, the EFA would be responsible for providing appropriate security for the national team to accompany them. The EFA responded by publishing a statement across its twitter accounts, which they later claimed were fake, threatening to refer Salah to a disciplinary committee.
