The Pharaohs have qualified for the round of 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations after finshing seocnd in their group.

However, it has not been smooth sailing for the seven-time winners who have failed to score more than one goal in any of their three group stage encounters.

Aboagye feels too much dependency on Salah to find the back of the net, as he has only scored goal at the tournament so far.

“Egypt didn’t perform badly, but winning by just one goal in each match is not enough,” he told Al-Oula TV.

“Everyone depends on Mohamed Salah to score goals, which puts a lot of pressure on the Liverpool player.

“I expect Cameroon or Nigeria to win the Africa Cup of Nations,” he added.
