Mo Salah of Egypt has been ruled out of next month’s world cup competition in Russia after suffering a shoulder injury in a tackle with Real Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos. He was substituted shortly after when the pain as a result of the fall couldn’t allow him continue.
Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp said the problem looked “really serious” and, although he was eager to wait for tests, he admitted Salah’s prospects of going to Russia 2018 were in jeopardy.
However, the Egyptian FA has given fans some level of hope about Mo Salah and his world cup ambition. Yesterday, the FA tweeted to say their team doctor spoke with Liverpool officials who confirmed an x-ray showed ligament damage in his shoulder, rather than a fracture.
“During the telephone follow-up conducted by the national team delegation in Italy to check on the status of Mohammed Salah, Liverpool officials said Liverpool that X-rays were carried out on Salah’s shoulder and showed that the injury was a shock in the shoulder joints,” the Egypt FA tweeted.
The UEFA Champions League final ended 3 – 1 in favor of Real Madrid who got a goal from Benzema with Gareth Bale netting twice. Sadio Mane gave Liverpool some ray of hope when he equalized to make the game 1 – 1. But few minutes later, Bale’s brilliant efforts sealed the game for the Los Blancos.
