On June 21st, the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2019) kicked off with the opening match between Egypt and Zimbabwe at Cairo International Stadium. The home team won 1-0 with Mahmoud Trezeguet‘s sensational goal, but that’s not what people are talking about.
If you look up #AFCON2019 on Twitter or anywhere on social media, you’re going to find thousands of people in awe because they just witnessed one of the greatest opening ceremonies in the history of the competition.
Egypt is currently the talk of the world, and not just the world of football!
Ever since the official reveal of Egypt being the AFCON 2019 host, we knew that the opening ceremony was going to be special. It’s the land of the pharaohs after all. But we certainly didn’t expect it to be that phenomenal.
And as you can all see in the comments and posts; people are absolutely mesmerized with the stunning ceremony. From the fireworks, the outstanding lighting, the Pyramids with the African flags on them, to the mind-blowing performers, the dance and the opening song with Hakim.
We’re absolutely touched to see how Egypt made – not just Egyptians – but the world; and most importantly the African countries, proud.
People are saying things like “Take a bow“, “It feels like Egypt is hosting the World Cup“, “That’s why civilization started in Egypt” and more. That’s in addition to our beloved African brothers and sisters whose countries are participating in the AFCON; they are thanking and applauding us!
In all honesty, we’re bursting with pride. Egypt made Africa proud, with Synergy taking all the credits for the production!
Now tell us; how do YOU feel?
