Salah was hurt when he tangled with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and was treated, but he collapsed to the ground again four minutes later and left the game after 30 minutes.

Real Madrid's Spanish defender Sergio Ramos (C) holds the trophy after winning the UEFA Champions League final football match between Liverpool and Real Madrid at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine on May 26, 2018.

Salah came off in tears half an hour into Liverpool's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in Kiev on Saturday after hurting his shoulder under a challenge from Ramos, who later wished the Egypt worldwide a speedy recovery.

The Egyptian FA added that physician Dr. Mohammed Abu Ola - who is said to have spoken directly with Liverpool's medical staff over the player's condition - remains "optimistic" that Salah can make the World Cup.


The Liverpool star was reduced to tears as he left the field during the first-half of the showpiece clash in Kiev.

Real Madrid went on to win the final 3-1.

Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said "anything is possible" but that Salah is doubtful for the World Cup.

Mohamed Salah has been tipped to fire Liverpool to Champions League glory by Istanbul hero Luis Garcia.


This season, Salah has emerged as a top contender to rival Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi for the Ballon d'Or and other player of the year awards after scoring 44 goals in all competitions.

The Spanish will fly to Russian Federation on June 7 and will play another preparation game, this time with the full squad available, against Tunisia in Krasnodar on June 9, just six days before they kick off their World Cup campaign against Portugal in the Fisht Stadium in Sochi.

Egypt has been captivated by Salah since he moved to Liverpool from Rome last summer.
