Emotional Mo Salah Tells Twitter Followers He’s Confident He’ll be in Russia For the World Cup

Mo Salah has taken to social media for the first time since Liverpool‘s heartbreaking Champions League final ordeal last night, and told his Twitter followers he’ll be in Russia for next month’s World Cup.

The magical Egyptian saw the curtain fall on his incredible season in Kiev in depressing fashion, after he was carried off after just 30 minutes of the 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid with a suspected dislocated shoulder.

It now appears Salah will be out for just two weeks with ligament damage and should make the starting line-up for Egypt’s first group match against Uruguay on June 15.

But, despite the relatively good news, Salah was obviously still emotional today as he reflected on last night – and promised he’ll continue to fight on:

The 25-year-old scored 45 goals in 54 appearances for club and country throughout the 2017/18 season and we’re in absolute no doubt that the World Cup would be a much duller place without Salah.

Fingers crossed he makes it, eh?
