Mohammed Salah ruled out in Egypt’s AFCON clash against Kenya and Comoros due to an ankle injury

Liverpool and Egyptian forward Mohammed Salah has been impressive for Liverpool this season, scoring the second goal for Liverpool when Jurgen Klopp’s side thrashed Manchester City 3-1 at Anfield last Sunday.

Salah walked into Egypt national team camp with high hopes after grabbing that powerful header against City.

He joined Egypt’s training on Tuesday morning but the Egyptian FA later today confirmed that Salah is ruled out in their clash against Kenya and Comoros in the 2021 AFCON qualifying round.

Salah suffered the ankle injury during Liverpool’s win over Leicester City on October 5 this year, and has since struggled to get to full fitness.

The Egyptian forward thought he was back to full fitness, and that even forced him to make a trip to his homeland to ensure that he plays a big part in Egypt’s games against Kenya and Comoros. But later on Tuesday afternoon, Salah complained to the medical team of Egypt FA about a pain in his ankle.

After a meeting between team doctor, boss and captain, Egypt released a statement to confirm the sideline of their Super Star. The Egyptian FA confirmed that Salah underwent a test before he was finally ruled out.

Egypt host Kenya on 14th this month before they travel in four days later to face Comoros.
