Cameroon coach Conceicao admits hard to stop Liverpool ace Salah

Cameroon manager Antonio Conceicao admits that taking on Mohamed Salah is a huge challenge.

Salah and Egypt are set to take on the hosts Cameroon in the second African Cup of Nations semi-final on Thursday.

The winner will take on Senegal, who booked their place in the final on Wednesday.

"Mohamed Salah is an important player who can make the difference at any moment, but our biggest challenge is to reach a balance between defence and attack," Conceicao said during a pre-match press conference.

For his part, Salah is remaining calm ahead of the game.

"We must keep our feet on the ground because we cannot think too far ahead yet," Salah said.

"We have to prepare for the big match against Cameroon and not start making dreams about the final before the semi-final."
