Liverpool Star Mohamed Salah ’s Champions League final ended in heartbreak on Saturday evening, as the Liverpool forward suffered a game-ending injury in the first-half against Real Madrid .
It was later announced that the 25-year-old had suffered a dislocated shoulder, an injury which could rule him out of the 2018 World Cup.
However, the Egyptian FA later tweeted that they had been informed Salah had sustained “a sprain the shoulder ligaments”, raising hopes he could yet travel to Russia.
Salah landed awkwardly on his shoulder after a challenge from Real captain Sergio Ramos , with the Spanish defender appearing to keep hold of the Egyptian’s arm as they tumbled to the ground.
Liverpool later released an official statement, reiterating comments made by Jurgen Klopp earlier in the night.
Klopp told his post-match press conference: “It’s a serious injury, a really serious injury. He is in the hospital for an X-ray. It’s either the collarbone or the shoulder itself. It doesn’t look good, that’s it.”
However, Egypt will likely take Salah to Russia regardless.
But the odds of the Premier League’s top goalscorer making it onto the pitch appear slim at this stage.
