Mohamed Salah Immortalised In New Statue Back Home In Egypt. Photos

Liverpool star Mohammed Salah famously scored the penalty that took his nation to their first World Cup in 28 years, but after his Champions League final injury seriously hampered his fitness ahead of the tournament in Russia he was forced to miss his side’s first game against Uruguay, a 1-0 defeat.

He returned for the matches against Russia and Saudi Arabia, scoring in both, but – in the midst of off-field rows – Egypt lost both games to exit in the group stages .

Egyptian sculptor Mai Abdel Allah has unveiled a new statue of Salah at the World Youth Forum in Sharm El Sheikh, which runs from November 3-6.

The statue shows Salah with his arms outstretched in apparent celebration, albeit with much… er… bigger hair than we are used to seeing.
