Liverpool star Mohamed Salah will miss Egypt's upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers after testing positive for COVID-19.
The 28-year-old was due to face Togo on Saturday, but that is no longer the case as the Egyptian Football Association confirmed he had contracted the virus.
"The medical swab conducted on the mission of our first national football team showed that our international player, Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, was infected with the Corona virus, after his test came positive ... although he does not suffer from any symptoms..While the other members of the team were negative," the translated tweet read.
While this spells bad news for Egypt, it remains to be seen how Liverpool will cope with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold and now Salah absent.
