Looking ahead, Egypt are set to face the runner-ups of Group F, a competitive line-up featuring Morocco, DR Congo, Zambia, and Tanzania. The final standings for the group will be determined on Wednesday, adding an extra layer of anticipation to the upcoming clash.

After being named the Man of the Match, Trezeguet delivered a resounding commitment to the Egyptian supporters: "I promise the Egyptian people to bring back the Africa Cup of Nations title to Egypt. We will fight until the end to claim the title."

Expressing confidence in the team's spirit, he added, "God willing, there is no worry about the Round of 16 encounter, and the true essence of the Egyptian national team will shine in the upcoming rounds. Without any arrogance, we are Egypt, and it doesn't matter who we face in the Round of 16; we are the source of concern for our opponents."

As fans await Egypt's next move in the tournament, Trezeguet's words echo the determination of a team poised for success, ready to bring glory back to their football-loving nation.
