Former Vice President of Egyptian Football Association (EFA), Ahmed Shobier has divulged that the FA has opened investigation on the missing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy.
The Egyptian national team enjoyed unprecedented success between 2006 to 2010. They won the AFCON trophy on three consecutive occasions (2006, 2008 and 2010).
This meant they were supposed to keep the title permanently.
However, the former Vice President of the FA, Ahmed Shobier has revealed that the trophy cannot be found.
“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.”
