Salah scored 4 times in his last three Serie A games and is expected to lead the line when Egypt take on the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Kaduna and Cairo.

“No doubt he will be their go to man that is why the Super Eagles need to put an eye on him, he has been scoring goals of late that has given him a lot of confidence” He told owngoalnigeria.com.

The Kaduna born forward ended by calling on Nigerians to pray and support the Eagles to pick at least four point from the two games against Egypt that will see them grab top spot from the Pharaohs.

“I trust the fans of Kaduna to support the Eagles all the way but they should also pray for them as well, we just need four points from the two games to top the group and I sincerely believe we can get them”.
