Mohamed Salah has been excused from upcoming international duty in March.
The versatile forward has scored 39 times for country, and helped them to an AFCON final in 2017 as well as an appearance in the FIFA world cup 2018 after a long period of absence.
The Egyptian FA have today confirmed that Mo. Salah has been excused from international duty come March. Egypt has qualified for the AFCON as New host. Even before they accepted the task of hosting the continent, they stood second in their group with 12 points enough to sail them through.
Egypt’s final qualifier game against Niger may be used as experimental games where the Pharaoh’s coach Javier Aguirre can try out fresh blood, to see if the youths can man up and play with the big-guns few months to the football Continental party.
Liverpool fans would be happy with this News, taking into consideration the fact that they are involved in a contest with Manchester city, to try and get that much awaited premier league title that has evaded them for over 28 years, and Salah’s role cannot be overemphasized.
The 26-year-old has scored Premier League 16 goals, one above fellow African, Pierre-Emirick Aubameyang. The ‘Egyptian king’ has already registered his name in the EPL 50 times, 48 of those coming for Liverpool, and two came at his time in the blue half of London (Chelsea).
Having Salah prevent the travel to Africa in March is very important for Liverpool could certainly help their persuit for the Premier League crown especially if Salah stays and score more goals.
