Mohamed Salah's AFCON is officially over! Liverpool star suffered 'proper hamstring tear' on Egypt duty as Pep Lijnders confirms lengthy recovery timeframe




Mohamed Salah's AFCON campaign with Egypt is officially over as the Liverpool star has suffered a "proper hamstring tear".


The 31-year-old sustained a muscle injury during Egypt's Africa Cup of Nations match against Ghana, which ended in a 2-2 draw. 


The severity of the injury was worse than initially feared, and Salah is expected to undergo an intensive rehabilitation program upon his return to Liverpool on Wednesday. 


He is highly unlikely to feature again in this edition of the AFCON, even if Egypt make it all the way to the final, as he might need a month to get back to full fitness.
