Klopp confirms Mohamed Salah is likely to miss World Cup

A few minutes after Mohamed Salah's forced substitution with a shoulder injury, a distraught Carvajal was in tears on the pitch in Kiev as he realised his own Russian Federation dreams with Spain were over. Veteran defender Ramos grabbed Salah chasing the ball and held on to his right arm.

The Spain global was also seen crying as he left the pitch to be replaced by Nacho in the 37th minute.

The Egyptian Football Association is "optimistic" Mohamed Salah will be able to play in the World Cup, after he suffered what Liverpool manager called a "really serious injury" in Saturday's Champions League final defeat.

The injury now puts Salah's World Cup prospects in jeopardy, though he will have to await a doctor's scan before any decision is made. In their twisting fall, Salah landed heavily on his left shoulder and exited the match in Kiev, Ukraine, after just 30 minutes.

The Liverpool star was reduced to tears as he left the field during the first-half of the showpiece clash in Kiev.

Until Salah's injury, Liverpool had been on top, but following the shocking incident, they went on to lose due to a combination of two goalkeeping howlers by Loris Karius and a superb Gareth Bale goal.
