Liverpool's Mohamed Salah rolls the ball past Tottenham's Christian Eriksen at Wembley.

Salah was taken off in stoppage time of Egypt's 4-1 win over Swaziland on Friday night, having gone down to the turf minutes earlier with what appeared to be an issue with his left leg.

Egypt's assistant coach says Mohamed Salah's injury "doesn't look serious" after the Liverpool forward limped off late in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland.

However, Salah has bagged himself a morale-boosting goal on global duty today as he's scored a stunning effort straight from a corner during Egypt's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland.

"What I like about Mo Salah is that his work ethic is brilliant, he doesn't shy away from anything".

So far this season, Salah has struggled to recapture the kind of goal-scoring form he displayed in his first campaign at Anfield - one which saw hime named PFA Player of the Year.

The initial diagnosis confirmed that the injury is a muscle strain and there is no possibility of muscle rupture.

Salah then made it 4-0 by scoring directly from a corner.

Egypt's win put it joint-top of its qualifying group alongside Tunisia, which plays on Saturday. The team failed to qualify for the last two World Cups and three of the last five African Cups and the latest blow came this week with a fallout between national broadcaster SABC and the South African Football Association over the value of the national team.
