The Liverpool forward put Egypt ahead but wasted a golden opportunity to double the lead, giving Saudi Arabia the chance to claw their way back into the game that was settled by a 95th-minute victor by midfielder Salem Al-Dawsari.

"I think that in general we kept control of the pace, we kept possession. and I think that we deserved to win", Saudi coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said. "Yes we lost all three matches but we lost two games with goals conceded after 90 minutes".

Salah, who went into the tournament with doubts over his fitness, scored the two goals for his country.

The Liverpool striker did not celebrate his goal, fueling speculation he could still quit the national team over a political row.
