Liverpool star Mo Salah was ‘shocked’ by claims he would leave the World Cup before Egypt’s final group match with Saudi Arabia.

The Pharaohs have lost both of their opening matches, and will head home before the knockout stages.

But reports within the Egyptian press have claimed that Salah, who scored in the 3-1 loss to hosts Russia, which sealed Egypt’s fate, would exit before their finale.

A 3-1 defeat to the hosts, which saw Salah score from the penalty spot, followed a 1-0 loss to Uruguay, which the Liverpool man missed due to the shoulder injury sustained at the Champions League final.
