Will Salah & Mane play?

Egypt general manager Diaa El-Sayed has confirmed that Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah will be available to figure in a crucial contest for his country despite seeing just 34 minutes of action at club level due to injury since March 12.

Seny Dieng and Alfred Gomis are among those to have missed out for Senegal after picking up untimely knocks, but another Anfield icon – Sadio Mane – is in contention to figure after being rested by Jurgen Klopp as the Reds edged out Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Egypt 1-0 Senegal

The most recent meeting between Egypt and Senegal saw them square off in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

A tight contest delivered no goals across 120 minutes, meaning that the destination of the prestigious trophy had to be decided in a penalty shootout.

With Egypt failing with two of their efforts – meaning that Salah never even got the chance to step up for their fifth – it was left to Mane to seal a historic first continental crown for Senegal.
