Egypt AFCON trophy missing

The Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy that the Egypt national team won in 2010 is reportedly missing.

It was all joy when the team won the AFCON trophy for three consecutive times -2006, 2008 and 2010.

This meant they were supposed to keep the title permanently.

However, 10 years after they last won the trophy, the Egyptian Football Association has revealed that the trophies cannot be found.

Former Egyptian Football Association vice president, Ahmed Shobier, revealed this on Friday September 4.

“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,” Shobier said.

“Nobody knows where the trophy is at the time being,”
