Salah has broken Fowler's Liverpool records with impunity this season, whether it's the fastest to score 20 goals, number of goals in a season, or those scored with the magical left-foot.
He is far and away the biggest star in Egypt and key to the country's hopes in Russian Federation, and the injury may mean he is denied the chance to take part in the nation's first World Cup since 1990.
Two absolute howlers from goalkeeper Loris Karius gifted goals to Karim Benzema (1-0) and Gareth Bale (3-1), whilst the Welshman's goal to make the game 2-1 was one of the greatest that has ever been scored in a European Cup final.

From a group that has the hosts Russian Federation, and Saudi Arabia, the lowest-ranked team in the competition, Salah alone could ensure that this team does better than the Egyptian squads of 1934 and 1990 when they didn't advance past the opening round.More news: Madden NFL 19 Pre-Order Bonuses and First Screenshots Unveiled by EA
