Despite a fine performance against Morocco—and a somewhat generous inclusion in Caf’s Team of the Tournament—Salah was far from his best at the Nations Cup, where he struggled to ignite an Egypt side that owed much of their run to the final to a rugged and resilient defensive display.
Similarly, while Mane will likely have the opportunity to take on a World Cup in his prime, we’ll now never see peak Salah testing himself on the grandest stage of all; the forward failed to qualify in 2014, when he was still finding his way in the game, and injury infamously overshadowed his contribution in 2018.
Injury issues have prevented him from making the desired impact at Anfield, but the 29-year-old is now back to full fitness and ready to build on the promising cameos he has put in to this point.
They battled through those issues to secure a third-place finish and Champions League qualification, and key men are now back and ready to hit the ground running in a fresh bid for more major silverware.
