  • [Video] Liverpool Star Mo Salah Scores Superb Goal For Egypt Straight From A Corner

Mohamed Salah may not yet have hit the extraordinary heights of last season with Liverpool in the current campaign, but on Friday with Egypt, the winger scored a fabulous goal direct from a corner kick.

Yet Salah remains a player of huge importance to Jurgen Klopp and his system having started all of their 10 league and Champions League matches this season, returning three goals and a single assist.

But the best news for Liverpool fans is that Salah's injury doesn't look serious, according to Egypt assistant coach Hany Ramzy.

Salah was substituted in the dying embers of the Pharaohs' African Nations Cup qualifying victory against Swaziland.

But Salah's night came to a premature end when he went down injured late in the game, appearing to hold his hamstring.


Salah has managed to score just three goals in his 11 matches in all competitions so far and has produced some frustrating performances for Liverpool in recent weeks with the attacker missing a number of chances that you'd have expected him to finish.

"He will be examined to determine the details, but in my opinion it is not serious".

Salah then made it 4-0 by scoring directly from a corner.

But of more immediate concern will be the Liverpool star's health status, with the Reds returning to action next Saturday against Huddersfield Town.

Egypt could give Salah a breather for Tuesday's reverse fixture in Swaziland. The top two teams in each group qualify for the African Cup next June and July.
