Mo Salah limps off after scoring for Egypt directly from a corner

Christian Benteke

He blasted a shot wide with Egypt three goals ahead before curling a corner into the net on the stroke of half-time.

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

Egypt assistant coach Hany Ramzy played down the seriousness of the injury though.

"The primary diagnosis confirms it's just a strain and no muscle rupture is apparent", Ramzy told beIN SPORTS.

With eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) ranked even lower than Niger, there were expectations that Salah could get back on the goal trail at the Al Salam Stadium in the Egyptian capital.

"But the player will need to undergo scans to determine the full extent of the injury and the time needed to heal. We hope he's fit as soon as possible".

Taking an inswinging corner from the right-hand side, Salah produced an audacious effort which caught out the Swaziland goalkeeper and nestled in the goal.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes Salah - who the title hopefuls will hope is fit to face Huddersfield a week today (5.30pm) - has not had as below-par a season as has been made out.

"He's still a good player, he's still an excellent player but to replicate what he did a year ago will be unbelievable".

"Salah's injury is not a muscule tear and I don't think it is serious".

"What I would be more anxious about is if he wasn't getting chances". "I'm not sure he'll hit the heights he did past year but he is still a magnificent player".

Salah has now broken his mini-goal drought and fans have been thrilled with the way he did it.
