Mohamed Salah has returned to Liverpool for treatment after he limped off with an injury late in Egypt’s 4-1 win over Swaziland on Friday, after he earlier scored a record-breaking goal for the Pharaohs, Goal football news website reports.
Salah was on the scoresheet for his country in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, but picked up a injury in the latter stages of the match, and despite returning to the field following a period of treatment, did not finish the contest
Speaking after the match, Egypt assistant coach Hany Ramzy told BeIN Sports: “The initial diagnosis, according to the team doctor, is a strong muscle strain. It is not a tear, I think it is not serious.”.
Salah has scored just three in 11 appearances for the Reds, who return to Premier League action against Huddersfield on October 20.
