An “incredible” goal from star Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah in the Africa Nations Cup qualifier in Cairo on Friday left Twitterati into a frenzy. Salah scored the ‘wonder goal’ directly from a corner but later limped off as the match drew to a close. In the qualifier, Egypt registered 4-1 win over eSwatini (Swaziland).
However, Salah’s goal remained the moment of the match with people on social media hailing the 26-year-old “King of Egypt” for his sublime goal. While some bestowed him with the title of the Egyptian King, others were not able to believe what their eyes just saw - a shocking goal directly from a corner kick.

Later, speaking about the injury of Salah, Egypt assistant coach Hany Ramzy said that it was not a big injury and he will return as soon as possible.
“The initial diagnosis confirmed that the injury is a muscle strain and there is no possibility of muscle rupture. It is not a big injury. We support him with all our energy and we hope he will return as soon as possible,” The Guardian quoted Ramzy as saying.
