Liverpool and Egyptian forward Mohammed Salah has revealed he will welcome an opportunity to be at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics according to a BBC Sport source.
Former Stoke City striker Ramadan Sobhi who is now with the Egyptian side Al Ahly, said that Salah had been in touch with him on reaching the Olympics.
“Salah called me on phone yesterday and congratulated us on the qualification for which I thank him very much Sobhi said.
However, Sobhi was also quick to add that it was too early to talk about who will join the squad for Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
“I also think its too early to talk about the players who will join us in Tokyo, we have 21 fighters in our squad (at the Under-23 Africa Cup of Nations) and they have done amazing job in the tournament”.
Egyptian U23 Coach Shawky Garib however stated that it is too early to talk about the overage player that will join the squad.
Egypt will face Ivory Coast in the final of the U-23 AFCON to know who lifts the continental trophy. However, both teams have qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
