Liverpool’s star attacker has enjoyed an amazing three-year spell in England with the Reds, winning the club’s sixth European Cup and a first Champions League crown since 2005.

The Reds also appeared on course for a first top flight title in 30 years and a maiden Premier League success before the suspension of the European football season (this could still happen if the season resumes or the football authorities award the Merseyside club the title in an event where it’s unsafe to return).

Salah broke several individual records on his return to English football in 2017/18, including the 31-goal tally for a 38-game Premier League season previously shared by Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.

He’s one of eight players to have won the Golden Boot multiple times and the second African after Didier Drogba to end top scorer in more than one season.

The two-time African Footballer of the Year is one of nine men to have multiple successes, level with greats like Roger Milla, Nwankwo Kanu and Drogba.

Perhaps already a legend according to some observers, triumph at the Africa Cup of Nations, Egypt’s first since 2010 and eighth overall would definitely secure his place alongside other African greats.
