2019 AFCON: Salah dropped from Egypt squad


The Egyptian Football Association, EFA, have announced that Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah will not feature in Egypt’s final African Cup of Nations, AFCON, qualifier game against Niger on March 25.

The EFA also said that Salah will miss Egypt’s international friendly game against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Speaking to KingFut, the EFA vice-president, Ahmed Shobier, said: “Mohamed Salah will not play the Niger game in the AFCON qualifiers or the Nigeria friendly.”

Shobier added: “Ahmed Hegazi will probably also be left out of the squad.”

Salah, who is currently the Premier League highest goalscorer with 16 goals, was unable to extend his lead on top of the goal chart by more than one goal after he failed to score in his side’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United on Monday night.

The 26-year-old will hope to lead Liverpool back on top of the Premier League table when they tackle Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend.
