AFCON

Why Premier League Fans Are Happy After Egypt Qualified For Afcon Quarter Finals

Ivory Coast faced Egypt in the CAF African Cup Of Nations Round of 16 last night. Both teams produced a fantastic football but failed to find the back of the next in the normal time and even after the extra time and the match was decided on penalties which Egypt won after Manchester United center-back Erick Bailey failed to convert his spot-kick.

Many Premier League fans thanked Erick Bailey for allowing Egypt to advance to the CAF African Cup Of Nations quarter-finals. This is because Mo Salah will take more time to return to the English Premier League. The Egyptian captain has been giving defenders in the Premier League a difficult time this season. He has already scored 16 goals and Registered more than eight assists. Many Premier League clubs will be happy to play against Liverpool without Mo Salah and Sadio Mane who are still participating in the African Cup Of Nations.
