Mohamed Salah has returned to Liverpool for treatment on a muscle strain suffered in Egypt's 4-1 win over Swaziland on Friday.

Salah – who scored direct 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 Tuesday's reverse fixture with Swaziland.
