Liverpool’s top scorer was forced out of the Champions League after just 30 minutes due to injury, a defining moment which eventually helped Real Madrid to victory 3-1. But there was more. Salah’s injury to his shoulder after a tangle with Real defender Sergio Ramos appeared so serious at the outset that rumours lit up social media that he might miss the World Cup. After a day of hearsay and unconfirmed reports, the official word was that the Egyptian king would be ready to play in Russia although there is concern he might not be 100 per cent fit.
