Mohamed Salah left out of Egypt squad for March internationals

Liverpool will not be left fretting over the possibility of Mohamed Salah being injured on global duty next month, with the forward set to be omitted from the Egypt squad.

The 26-year-old will hope to lead Liverpool back on top of the Premier League table when they tackle Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend.

Salah is believed to have a key role to play for the Pharaohs in the future and is set to be awarded a much-needed break.

Although, Egypt have sealed qualification for this year's AFCON on home soil, the North Africans are still expected to round-off the qualifiers against Niger on March 22.

Egypt will travel to Niamey, the capital of Niger, to play their final Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against the local side on March 22nd, though they have already qualified for the 2019 tournament, before playing Nigeria in a friendly on March 26th.

Hegazi is now on the books at West Brom, so they will also be delighted to discover that no global risks will be taken over the coming weeks.

Salah has scored 4 goals for Egypt in the qualifiers and his absence will most likely boost Liverpool's campaigns in the Premier League and the Champions League.

They are due to face Spurs as part of their March schedule, along with Premier League fixtures against Burnley, Everton and Fulham.
