EFA investigates missing African Cup of Nations trophies

Looks like someone at the EFA is going to be looking for a new job: The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) discovered that several trophies were stolen from its storage room as the EFA was renovating its headquarters to include a museum at the entrance, according to a statement. It has since opened an investigation and believes the trophies could have been stolen in 2013 when angry fans looted and set fire to the headquarters. One of the trophies missing is an original African Cup of Nations that Egypt was permanently awarded after three consecutive triumphs in 2006, 2008 and 2010, according to BBC. Kingfut and Goal have also picked up the story.
