Liverpool received an injury scare after Momahed Salah went down with an apparent hamstring injury during Egypt’s game against Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Salah, who serves as Pharaohs’ team captain, was holding his left thigh during the last minute of the first half.
The Egypt’s medical staff quickly attended to Salah but indicated that he could not continue the Group B contest.
Salah, the most high-profile player in the tournament, handed over the captain’s armband to defender Ahmed Hegazi as he received some cheers from some Ghana fans.
“Of course, we are worried, and we hope it is not too serious,” said Egypt coach Rui Vitoria regarding the status of Salah’s injury.
Ghana took advantage of Salah’s exit, as they drew first blood a minute later for a 1-0 halftime lead.
Egypt rallied twice from behind to finish the game with a 2-2 draw and secure a point to sit second in Group B on two points.
However, Salah’s side has yet to win in this year’s African meet.
Salah is currently leading Liverpool in contention for the Premier League title, with only two points clear of defending champions Manchester City.
The right winger has scored 18 goals so far this season, 14 of which coming in the Premier League.
