Mohamed Salah claims he is desperate to lead Egypt to success at the Africa Cup of Nations as winning a trophy for his country would be closest to his heart.
The Liverpool star fired home the winning penalty in their last-16 shootout victory over Ivory Coast on Wednesday night, which saw Manchester United's Eric Bailly miss the decisive spot-kick for the Elephants.
Following his penalty heroics against Ivory Coast, Salah declared his intention to have a glory with Egypt.
"Of course I want to win something with the national team," he said. "It's my country, what I love the most.
"This trophy for me would be completely different, would be the closest to my heart.
"We were close before to win this African Cup (in 2017), we gave it everything but we were not lucky to win it.
"But it's ok, now we are here in the new one. We have to fight for it, we have to give everything to win it and I'm sure the players have the same feeling.
"So hopefully we just need to focus on tomorrow's game and we go from there."
