EFA reveal duration of Mohamed Salah’s absence

The Egyptian Football Association has confirmed that Mohamed Salah will miss two games in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Egypt captain Mohamed Salah was forced off injured on the brink of half-time in the Pharaohs’ 2-2 draw against Ghana on Thursday.

It’s suspected to be a hamstring injury after Salah was seen grabbing the back of his left leg, before handing over the captain’s armband to Ahmed Hegazi and then limping outside of the pitch.

The news were confirmed by the EFA, who went on to reveal that the Liverpool superstar will miss just two games, the final group game against Cape Verde, and the round of 16 tie in case of the Pharaohs make it through.

“The scans that Mohamed Salah, the captain of the Egyptian national team, underwent confirmed his injury to the hamstring,” A statement from the EFA read.

“Salah will be absent from the next two matches in the Africa Cup of Nations against Cape Verde, and then in the Round of 16 in the event of qualification.”

It’s now yet to be seen who will replace Salah in these two games, with the likes of Ahmed Sayed Zizo, Mahmoud Trezeguet, and Mostafa Fathi all on standby.

Fathi was the player who came on for Salah against Ghana, but it’s more likely expected that Zizo will start against Cape Verde in his preferred right-wing position.
