Mohamed Salah has missed today’s training session ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations round of 16 as he is suffering from a cold.

In a late scare for the Pharaohs, Mohamed Salah may be a doubt for the round of 16 clash with South Africa as he is currently ill with cold.

The Liverpool talisman has had a good start to his Africa Cup of Nations campaign, scoring twice in three games, however he has still not quite hit the heights that we all know he can achieve so far.

This may be an indicator that he has been suffering with this cold for around a week, although this is currently unknown.

While other players such as Trezeguet and even Ahmed Elmohamady have stepped up on the attacking side of things, Salah would be a huge miss especially against a side with as much quality as South Africa who are arguably a cut above everyone that Egypt have faced already this summer.

Whether Salah is ready or not, the match will take place on Saturday 6th of July at 9PM local time.
