Salah sidelined for two AFCON matches as Senegal and Cape Verde advance to last 16

Posted on :

The Egyptian Football Association has confirmed that Mohamed Salah will be ruled out of two Africa Cup of Nations games due to a hamstring injury. Salah, who plays for Liverpool, came off late in the first half of Egypt’s 2-2 draw with Ghana. As a result, he will not participate in the final group game against Cape Verde and any potential last-16 match. However, if Egypt reaches the quarter-finals, Salah may be able to return for his country. Senegal, the reigning champions, secured a spot in the last 16 with a 3-1 victory over Cameroon. Ismaila Sarr and Habib Diallo were instrumental in their win. Guinea also achieved a 1-0 victory over Gambia, thanks to Aguibou Camara’s goal. Cape Verde, on the other hand, became the first team to qualify for the last 16 by defeating Mozambique 3-0. They have now secured six points from two games and will face a third-placed team in the next round.
