The Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy is reportedly missing at the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) headquarters in Cairo according to the country’s football body’s ex-vice president Ahmed Shobier.

A stunning statement coming from Cairo has it that the prestigious silverware has mysteriously disappeared.

The Pharaohs of Egypt achieved unprecedented success in the competition between 2006 and 2010 winning three consecutive AFCON titles.

As a result, they had the opportunity to keep one of the precious items for themselves.

“The EFA started looking for some trophies as they aim to put them in a notable museum inside the EFA,” Shobier said to ‘On Time Sports’ TV show.

“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.”

The AFCON trophy has reportedly gone missing from the EFA headquarter in Cairo.
