Mo Salah was taken off towards the end of Egypt’s 4-1 victory over Swaziland on Friday night with a suspected muscular injury – but national boss Hany Ramzy insists it will not keep him out for long.
Salah had scored directly from a corner earlier in the game, but then felt something in his leg which forced him to be withdrawn.
However, according to the Daily Express, Ramzy said: “The player needs to have radiation to determine the injury and the duration of his absence.
“It is not a big injury, we support him with all our energy and we hope he will return without being affected by an injury as soon as possible.”
Egypt play Swaziland again on Tuesday in AFCON qualification – surely he will not be risked in that one. We can only hope common sense prevails.
