Egypt confirm injury recovery for Liverpool striker Salah

Liverpool have major injury fears for Mohamed Salah after he pulled out of the Egypt squad.

Liverpool are sweating over the fitness of Salah for their game against Crystal Palace as the forward pulls out of the Egypt squad with an ankle injury.

The Egyptian continues to be plagued by an ankle knock picked up in last month's win over Leicester.

A statement on the EFA's Twitter account read: " The medical staff of our national team, under the leadership of Dr Mohamed Abul-Ela, confirmed the lack of readiness of Mohamed Salah to play the matches against Kenya and Comoros after intensive tests."

The statement said the injury needed "a period of treatment to recover".

"The player had come to the camp this morning (Tuesday) after arriving in Cairo late yesterday evening and watched the evening training that the team played at the Burj Al Arab Stadium."
