It goes without saying the ‘The Egyptian King’ Mo Salah has the weight of expectations of a nation on his shoulders at the FIFA World Cup in Russia next month.
Liverpool have found themselves a host of new fans as-well in Egypt and many are watching the Champions League final tonight in Kiev against Real Madrid.
While Real Madrid have a strong following in Dubai, it’s safe to say, that in a City with over half a million Egyptians, most are supporting Salah and Liverpool tonight.
This is the moment Salah suffered a shoulder injury after a tackle by Sergio Ramos

Really feel for Mo Salah. Hope he doesnt miss the World Cup, first time for Egypt since 1990 and he played a major part in getting them through
