Mohamed Salah Hints At Retirement From Egypt

Pharaohs and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has expressed a possibility at hanging his boots for the national team.

The 29-year-old made the disclosure in a dressing room speech following the Pharaohs defeat to Senegal on Tuesday.

Salah missed a crucial penalty as lasers were shown into his face by the Lions of Teranga supporters in the World Cup qualifier.

“I told you before the second leg that I’m proud to play with you and you’re some of the most dedicated players I played with,” Salah said in a video published by the spokesperson of Egypt’s Ministry of Youth and Sports, as per KingFut.

“I played with the previous generation with Wael Gomaa and Mohamed Aboutrika, then with Abdallah El-Said and the following generation. And I can say that I’m happy with the current generation.

“I’m proud to have played with you and what happened was out of our control because they were penalty shootouts, and for the second time.

“There’s not much I can say, but it was a privilege to play alongside you, whether I’ll be here or not afterward.”

Mohamed Salah made his debut for Egypt when he was just 19-in a match against Sierra Leone. A month later, he scored his first goal for his country against Niger, while he also represented the Pharaohs at the Olympic Games in England in 2012.

He honed his skills in the youth teams of El Mokawloon SC, and made his debut for the senior side aged just 17 at the back end of the 2009-10 season, going on to make five appearances in total.

One of his crowning achievements  at the national team was scoring a last-moment goal in the 2017 World Cup qualifiers against Congo, sending Egypt to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
