The signature football boot collection for Salah was released by Adidas a few days before the AFCON tournament which got underway on Sunday with the opening match between hosts Cameroon and Burkina Faso in Group A.
Gustavo Sangare scored to give Burkina Faso the lead in the 24th minute before Cameroon skipper Vincent Aboubakar scored twice from the penalty spot in the last five minutes of the first half to turn the game around and give his team a 2-1 win. In the second Group A game, Julio Tavares scored the only goal of the game in added time of first half to give Cape Verde a 1-0 win over Ethiopia.
Salah and Egypt are in Group D alongside Nigeria, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau. There are three former winners in the group namely Egypt, Sudan and Nigeria. Egypt will start their campaign against Nigeria on Tuesday. Ahead of the game, Salah is one of the most in-form players in the world at the moment after netting 23 times in 26 games for Liverpool in all competitions this season.
