Mohamed Salah is set to travel to Spain for medical treatment

The record-setting Liverpool forward was forced off in the half-hour mark of the Champions League final against Real Madrid, after he landed awkwardly under a challenge from Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos. Being unable to continue, the tearful Salah was replaced by Adam Lallana for the rest of the game.

Liverpool went on to lose the game 3-1, earning the Spanish giants their third consecutive Champions League title and their 13th overall.

The worrying injury prompted concerns, not just among Egyptians, but Africans at large. Salah however moved to Twitter to express his optimism that he will join his fellow Pharaohs to Russia.

He will now seek medical treatment in Spain, where he will be accompanied by Liverpool’s doctors.

The FIFA World Cup is scheduled to begin on June 14, as 32 teams battle for honors in the World’s biggest football tournament.

Egypt is among five African teams that will also feature in the games. They are joined by Senegal, Tunisia, Nigeria and Morocco.

The Pharaohs are pooled alongside host Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay in Group A. They play their first game against the South Americans on 15 June.
