What trophies has Mohamed Salah won for Egypt?

Salah has yet to win a major trophy for Egypt, his highest honour on international level coming as runner-in the Africa Cup of Nations twice; in 2021 against Senegal, and in 2017 against Cameroon.

On an individual level, Salah is currently second in Egypt's all-time top-scorers list, behind only to Hossam Hassan who scored 68 goals over 176 appearances.

Salah tasted heartbreak in the 2021 Afcon final against Senegal, losing in a penalty shootout that ended 4-2 in Senegal's favour after the match ended 0-0 in regular time.

The forward did not actually partake in the ensuing penalty shootout, as he was saved to take the fifth penalty – often seen as the most important and decisive penalty – but Egypt had already missed two penalties by the time Senegal's Sadio Mane stepped up to take the fifth (and winning) spot-kick.

Salah scored two goals for Egypt during the Afcon 2021, and was comforted by his Liverpool team-mate Mane after the final defeat.

Salah scored two goals and provided two assists in the entire 2017 Afcon competition, though ultimately suffered a 2-1 loss in the final. Mohamed Elneny scored early on in the first half to give the Pharaohs the lead, but Cameroon struck twice through Nicolas Nkoulou and Vincent Aboubakar to be crowned tournament champions.

He was, however, named in the CAF Team of the Tournament for his contributions.

The farthest that Salah and his Egypt team have ever made it in the World Cup finals is the group stage, with the Pharaohs' appearance at the 2018 World Cup their first in the tournament since 1990.

Salah was Egypt's top scorer in the 2018 World Cup qualification stages, scoring five goals, and scored two goals in the World Cup proper before being eliminated in the group phase.

The forward was named captain of the Egypt team in 2019, leading his country in the 2021 Afcon.
