WHAT?! AFCON trophies missing?!

According to reports, former Egyptian Football Association (EFA) Vice-President, Ahmed Abdelaziz Shobeir, is claiming that the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy has disappeared from the association’s headquarter in Cairo, Egypt.

After winning the AFCON for three consecutive times in 2006, 2008 and 2010 under the guidance of legendary Head Coach Hassan Shehata, Egypt were allowed to retain the trophy for life and according to Shobeir 10 years later the EFA cannot locate the trophy.

“The EFA started looking for some trophies as they aim to put them in a notable museum inside the EFA,” Shobeir 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,” Shobeir concluded.
