In a shocking turn of events during Egypt’s recent clash against Sierra Leone, Liverpool’s star player, Mohamed Salah, found himself in the midst of chaos as pitch invaders disrupted the match. The alarming scenes unfolded last night, with security personnel resorting to physical altercations with the intruders.
As Salah showcased his football prowess on the pitch, security staff had to intervene forcefully when a fan, donning a Liverpool shirt, approached the winger. Adding to the chaos, another invader, wearing a Manchester City shirt, further heightened tensions. Salah’s teammate, Mohamed Abdelmonem, played a crucial role in chasing away a particularly aggressive intruder who sprinted toward the Reds star in the 89th minute.
Egyptian staff swiftly formed a protective barrier around the 31-year-old, ensuring his safety amidst the chaotic scenes. Soldiers surrounded Salah, eventually escorting him off the field. Bafflingly, a policeman was seen filming the ordeal. The unsettling incident unfolded with Salah looking visibly concerned, highlighting the severity of the situation.
Despite the off-field disturbances, Egypt secured a 2-0 victory over Sierra Leone, with former Aston Villa ace Trezeguet netting both goals. Salah, pivotal in the build-up, assisted in the second goal, contributing to Egypt’s success in Africa’s World Cup qualifying Group A.
