Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has been ruled out of Egypt’s upcoming matches against Kenya and Comoros with an ankle injury.
The Egpytian Football Association confirmed the winger’s absence with pictures of him wearing a protective boot on his left ankle.
The 27-year-old scored in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over title rivals Manchester City at the weekend before being taken off in the 87th minute.
Salah has had ongoing problems with his ankle since the win over Leicester on October 5, and also had to be substituted in the victory win over Tottenham late last month.
