Mo Salah limps off with potential hamstring injury


Mo Salah limped off for Egypt in their game against Ghana in the Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday night.

Salah, Egypt’s captain, went down injured shortly before half time, shaking his head as he left the pitch and then sitting on the bench as he was consoled by teammates.

The 31-year-old appeared to have a hamstring issue, which would almost certainly rule him out of the rest of the Afcon at the very least.

Indeed, things got worse for Egypt shortly after Salah’s injury, going behind Mohammed Kudus’ strike in first half stoppage time.

A defeat for Egypt would leave them very unlikely to progress from their group.

Liverpool already have eight players out injured, plus Salah and Wataru Endo being away on international duty.

Salah’s last injury was November 2019, an ankle issue that saw him miss two games for Egypt. The last time he missed a Liverpool game due to injury was in October 2019.

Indeed, he has only ever missed three Liverpool games due to injury since arriving at the club six and a half years ago.
