Salah was instrumental to Egypt’s qualification, scoring the penalty that sealed their place in the Mundial for the first time since 1990. The 25-year old is Egypt’s most important player as he wields the team’s attacking threat.
Salah has been sensational for Liverpool scoring 44 goals in all competitions.
