Mo­hamed Salah leaves Egypt match with an in­jury

Malta Independent - - Sport -

Egypt's as­sis­tant coach says Mo­hamed Salah's in­jury "doesn't look se­ri­ous" af­ter the Liver­pool for­ward limped off late in an African Cup of Na­tions qual­i­fier against Swazi­land. Salah scored di­rect from a cor­ner in Egypt's 4-1 win but went down with what ap­peared to be a leg in­jury in the 88th minute of Fri­day's qual­i­fier. He re­ceived treat­ment and tried to shake off the prob­lem but left the field soon af­ter, in in­jury time. Egypt had used all three of its sub­sti­tutes and played the last mo­ments of the match with 10 men. As­sis­tant coach Hany Ramzy told Egyp­tian news­pa­per Al-Ahram he thinks "it is only a mus­cle strain but he will un­dergo med­i­cal scans to de­ter­mine the length of the in­jury." Salah is ex­pected to sit out an away game in Swazi­land on Tues­day. Liver­pool's next game is away to Hud­der­s­field in the Premier League next Satur­day. The win put Egypt level with Tu­nisia at the top of Group J, although Tu­nisia has a game in hand.
