“Liverpool can do nothing but pray for Mohamed Salah’s safe exit from Egypt’s next World Cup qualifier,” this is the view of injury expert Ben Daenery, who runs the Premier League injuries website and has a background in medicine and data analysis.
Salah, who was suffering from a foot problem, played only half an hour as a substitute in the second half, in the 2-0 win over Arsenal last Wednesday (March 16), according to the tournament website.
And Jurgen Klopp confirmed in his statements last Friday, that Mohamed Salah felt something again in his foot, after facing Arsenal.
Mohamed Salah was excluded from the list of Liverpool to participate in last Sunday’s match against Nottingham Forest, in the FA Cup.
Mohamed Salah is currently in Egypt, with the Pharaohs, in preparation for the match against Senegal in the qualifying round for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Ben Denry told Football Insider: “It’s always worrying when a player goes to international duty, you can do nothing but pray that they perform as they should and come back safe and sound.”
He added, “With Salah, he is one of the best players in the world, he plays a pivotal role in the Liverpool team, they are still fighting in several championships (the English Premier League, the Champions League, the FA Cup).”
He continued: “He is the man of the big matches and he can make an impact when his team needs him most, they want him back fully fit after the international break.”
He explained, “The concern is that it is a big match for the Egyptian national team, and he is very focused on playing with his full strength for the national team.”
