Liverpool star Mohamed Salah suffers injury scare on international duty
Mohamed Salah was forced off with an injury playing for Egypt against Eswatini on Friday night.
The Liverpool forward enjoyed a good game, scoring direct from a corner as Egypt thrashed the African minnows 4-1 in the African Cup of Nations qualifier.
But Salahs night came to a premature end when he went down injured late in the game, appearing to hold his hamstring.

After receiving treatment on the side of the pitch, Salah returned to the fold before deciding he could not continue.
Salah has struggled to hit the heights of last season during the current campaign with Liverpool, but Jurgen Klopp will be worried to see his star man hobble off.
Klopp has backed Salah to rediscover his goalscoring touch, but he may be without the winger for the coming weeks.
Liverpool do not return to action until 20 October, and Salah will have most of the international break to recover should the injury turn out to be minor.
Salah ended a four-game goal drought with his strike against Eswatini and the attacker would be forgiven for missing some games due to injury.
Liverpool have a nice spell on paper when they resume club action, with games against Huddersfield, Crvena Zvezda and Cardiff City in October.
