On Tuesday evening, Egyptian FC tweeted confirming that their star player will miss qualification matches against Kenya and Comoros.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had earlier expressed his concern with the forward’s injury.

“I think it is more really annoying – for him, not me – the fact that it always has a bit of fluid in, and he has to deal with it, we get it out and it comes back, and stuff like that,” he said.

The attacker is likely to miss the Reds’ next upcoming assignments.
