Africa’s most prized footballing trophy has reportedly gone missing! That is according to former Egyptian Football Association vice-president and popular Egyptian media personality Ahmed Shobier.
Egypt were allowed to retain the trophy for life following their three-peat of the competition.
However, 10 years after last winning it, the trophy is no longer there.
“The EFA started looking for some trophies as they aim to put them in a notable museum inside the EFA,” Shobier said.
“However, the EFA was surprised to find that the AFCON trophy was lost and decided to open an investigation. They were informed by an employee inside the association that it was held by former Egypt captain Ahmed Hassan who refuted this claim.”
“Nobody knows where is the trophy at the time being,” Shobier added.
Algeria most recently lifted the trophy in Egypt when they defeated Senegal in the final.
