Champions League Final - Real Madrid vs Liverpool, 5 Moments We Won't Forget

Dejan Lovren’s Champions League final display shows Liverpool don’t need another defender

The Liverpool forward was injured in the first half of Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid and left the field in tears.

Salah's injury puts a cloud over whether he will be able to play for Egypt in the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation.

On Sunday, Salah posted a message saying: "It was a very tough night, but I'm a fighter".

"Your love and support will give me the strength I need", former Roma and Chelsea player added.

Initial fears were that Salah would miss the entirety of the World Cup in Russian Federation, with the 25-year-old Liverpool forward believed to have been sidelined for up to three months.

It was 0-0 at the time, and Madrid went on to win 3-1 on Saturday.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has slammed Liverpool players Mohamed Salah and Loris Karius for crying in the 2018 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Salah is Egypt's big hope to lead them into the World Cup, where they have been drawn in Group A along with hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay.

"We are going to do double session every day and we will try to reduce the recovery period".

But it has since emerged Salah sprained ligaments in his shoulder and could be fit in three to four weeks.

Egypt will have until the 4 of June to decide whether Salah will be eligible for the World Cup in the 23 man squad, after which no changes can be made.

"He is sad about what happened but he is totally focused on recovery and seeing when he can be ready". With Egypt qualifying for the tournament for the first time in 28 years, emotions in the country have been running high.

In an incredible first season with the Premier League club following his transfer from Roma past year, Salah broke a host of record as he scored 44 goals in all competitions.
