DAILY RECORD 🔵 Egypt release Mo Salah statement after star embroiled in sub controversy

The Egyptian FA have quashed rumours that Liverpool ace Mo Salah snubbed a substitution while on duty for his country.

The 31-year-old talisman was in action throughout the recent international break, featuring for the Pharaohs in their World Cup qualifying matches against Burkina Faso and Guinea-Bissau.

Salah found the back of the net with a brilliant effort to clinch a 1-1 draw in the latter match but soon found himself at the centre of a substitution scandal. As stoppage time approached, Mostafa Fathi and Nasser Maher were lined up to enter the fray, yet only Maher made it onto the pitch. Speculation swirled that Fathi was meant to replace Salah, who allegedly refused to be taken off, leading Fathi to return to the bench.
