On Sunday, Egypt played against Sierra Leone on neutral ground in Monrovia, Liberia. In the same match, Mohamed Salah participated in both of Egypt’s goals in the match in which the Egyptians won 2-0, against the Sierra Leone national team, which finished the match with nine players.
But all was not well at the match, and it did not seem that security was adequate at the Samuel Canyon Doe Sports Complex.
In the 89th minute, spectators ran onto the field, accompanied by security guards, with the aim of reaching Salah, who is considered the biggest star ever in African football.
Protected by his teammates
Security guards, the Egyptian Support Service, and the army all went out to the field to stop the situation.
He was sponsored by his colleague Mohamed Abdel Moneim, who protected him.

Salah himself does not seem to be affected by the situation, and this is not the first time this has happened to him. In November 2021, this happened three times with three different strikers in Egypt’s World Cup qualifier against Angola.
When the match ended, the army came to take care of him as he left the field.
Salah will now return to Merseyside, and has plenty of time to recover before Sunday’s big, important match away to Manchester City.
