Mohamed Salah returns to Liverpool after picking up injury with Egypt
The 26-year-old suffered a muscle strain during the 4-1 victory against Swaziland.
A decision has been made to release Salah from the squad ahead of Tuesday’s return fixture to allow him to receive treatment.
A statement from the Egyptian Football Association read: “Javier Aguirre has decided to let Mohamed Salah return to his club and not participate in the Swaziland match on Tuesday to give him more rest.
“During the previous match against Swaziland, Salah complained of stress in the musculoskeletal muscle.
“He was examined medically and radiation was performed on the area of complaint after the game.”
