Salah, who scored directly from a corner in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, was forced off late on having appeared to sustain a thigh injury.

Speaking directly after the game, assistant coach Hany Ramzy had told beIN SPORTS: "The primary diagnosis confirms it's just a strain and no muscle rupture is apparent."

Egypt has now confirmed that Salah will return to Liverpool and take no part in Wednesday's (NZDT) reverse fixture with Swaziland.
