Injury forces Mo Salah out of Egypt qualifier

Mohamed Salah’s injury forces him out of Egypt’s s fourth matchup in AfCON qualifier. National football team coach Javier Aguirre said yesterday that he will allow Salah to return to Liverpool for rest after medical examinations showed that he won’t be fit to play at Tuesday’s match against Swaziland, Egypt’s Football Association (EFA) said in a statement. It was not announced how long Salah will be out, but Football365 expects he would be sidelined for two weeks. Salah’s injury is reportedly minor, Egypt’s assistant coach Hany Ramzy said. Salah had pulled a hamstring in the 88th minute of Egypt’s Friday African Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland, which the Pharaohs won 4-1, according to the Guardian. Earlier in the game, Salah scored directly from a corner kick (watch, runtime: 1:03). Reuters, the Associated Press and the Telegraph have the story.
