Mohamed Salah scores from a corner, then limps off injured

[Video] Liverpool Star Mo Salah Scores Superb Goal For Egypt Straight From A Corner

Salah scored direct from a corner in Egypt's 4-1 win but went down with what appeared to be a leg injury in the 88th minute of Saturday's qualifier.

Salah has struggled to hit the heights of last season during the current campaign with Liverpool, but Jurgen Klopp will be anxious to see his star man hobble off.

But there were concerning signs with Salah in heavy strapping at the end of the match as the forward briefly returning to action after treatment before being substituted a minute into stoppage-time.

The goal came just before half-time, with Egypt already 3-0 up, with Salah curling in the corner with his left foot...

Liverpool entered the global break third in the Premier League, level on points with Manchester City and Chelsea but behind them by virtue of their slightly inferior goal difference.

"It doesn't look serious".

The initial diagnosis confirmed that the injury is a muscle strain and there is no possibility of muscle rupture. The two nations meet again on Tuesday, with Salah's status for that much unclear.

If Tunisia beat Niger tomorrow then the Pharaohs would hold a five-point cushion to Swaziland in third.

Supposedly the home of Africa's best league and the host of the 2010 World Cup, South African soccer keeps slipping.

Negotiating a new TV contract to show games, SAFA asked for $13 million a year from SABC.

"What I would be more anxious about is if he wasn't getting chances".
