Mohamed Salah, a forward for Liverpool, was forced off during Egypt’s Africa Cup of Nations match against Ghana. Egypt’s coach Rui Vitoria stated that he believes Salah’s injury is “not dangerous.”

Egypt suffered a major setback when Mohamed Salah went down off the ball late in the first half, indicating that he could not continue.
During Egypt’s play against Ghana, Salah passed the captain’s armband to Ahmed Hegazi and departed the pitch. Indicating the severity of his injury, he signalled that he could not continue and spent the last few minutes of the first half sitting on the ground in front of the dugout.
The supporters from Egypt and Liverpool instinctively assumed the worst as he grimaced and gripped the back of his thigh.
The number ten for Liverpool stood by as Mohammed Kudus gave Ghana the lead just before halftime. Omar Marmoush and Mostafa Mohamed, however, equalised for Egypt after Kudus scored once more to give the Black Stars the lead back.
In response to a question from the media regarding the extent of the Egyptian captain’s injury, Vitoria said, “Now I don’t know because it’s [too] early to see something.” According to The Standard, “I don’t think it’s dangerous, but let’s see if Salah recovers.”
Egypt’s final Africa Cup of Nations Group B matchup is against Cape Verde, and they currently have two points. If Cape Verde defeats Mozambique on Friday, they will have a chance to guarantee their place in the AFCON knockout stages with one game remaining. In response, Egypt might require a win over Cape Verde to stay in the competition and not lose it early.
