Worry For Liverpool Fans As Mohamed Salah Limps Out Of AFCON Tie

Egypt took on eSwatini this evening in an AFCON qualifier, with the Pharoahs easing to a 4-1 win with Mohamed Salah getting on the scoresheet.

Indeed it was Salah's goal that was the pick of the bunch, with the 26-year-old scoring directly from a corner in the 44th minute:

Liverpool fans will be glad to see their star player has found his scoring touch again, but there was concern for the Egyptian in the dying moments of the game when the forward had to be taken off with what looked like a thigh problem.

Needless to say Reds fans are none too pleased Salah getting a knock, the Egyptian has looked off colour lately, with many pointing to the amount of football he has played over the past six months as evidence of his fatigue.

However Egypt coach Hany Ramzy has played down Salah's exit, calling the injury a slight sprain, but that the player will have some precautionary tests just to be safe:
