AFCON 2023: Salah to miss Egypt’s next two matches

Egyptian winger and playmaker, Mohamed Salah will miss two the next two Africa Cup of Nations matches for Egypt after suffering a hamstring muscle strain during Thursday’s 2#2 draw with Ghana.

According to the Egyptian Football Association an x-ray conducted on the player confirms that Salah is suffering from a hamstring problem.

“The X-rays that Salah underwent confirmed his hamstring injury and he will miss the team’s next two matches in the Africa Cup of Nations against Cape Verde and the round of 16 if (Egypt) qualify,” the Egyptian Football Association said in a brief statement.

Salah pulled up with a hamstring strain before halftime in last Thursday’s Group B game against Ghana in Abidjan.

Salah netted a last-gasp penalty on Sunday, after a VAR decision, for Egypt to draw 2#2 with Mozambique in their opening game and escape an embarrassing defeat.

On Thursday, they came from behind twice to draw 2#2 with Ghana and effectively need a win in their last group game on Monday against the Cape Verde Islands if they are to advance to the last 16.
