Mohamed Salah 'confident' of playing for Egypt despite Champions League final injury

Mohamed Salah 'confident' of playing for Egypt despite Champions League final injury

The first came after 51 minutes, when Karius collected a long ball on the edge of his box, turned to his right, and, seemingly oblivious to the proximity of Real forward Karim Benzema, tossed the ball underhand to what he hope would have been a ready and waiting Liverpool player.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid poses with the Uefa Champions League trophy.

For the first he tried to roll the ball out with Karim Benzema standing too close to him and allowing the France global to divert it into the net, and he then let Gareth Bale's long-range drive slip through his grasp.

Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 3-1 to win their third consecutive Champions League title, with the go-ahead goal coming in the form of an astounding bicycle kick off the foot of Gareth Bale.

Ronaldo is constantly linked with a return to United, but after his words following the Champions League win over Liverpool made it see he would be more than open to a move, United have acted.

"It is a legendary club, one that has won 13 Champions Leagues and I am happy to be a part of its history too".

Supporters have called on UEFA as well as FIFA to take action against the Spaniard, who got tangled with Salah in a challenge during the final, causing a shoulder injury to the Egyptian, morale dip for Jurgen Klopp's side leading to Liverpool losing and threat of Salah missing out on FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation.

And while there were inevitable tears in the Liverpool camp, Real's players were understandably exultant as they celebrated a truly momentous achievement under the guidance of Zinedine Zidane. "These goals cost us the title, basically".




"Our achievement is the most important thing - we have to congratulate the players because it's not at all easy to do this", he said.

Ronaldo said in a later interview that he regretted the timing of his comments although his remarks brought back instant reminders of reports that emerged days after winning the 2017 final that he wanted to leave the club.

The Egyptian was forced off on the 30-minute mark when he landing awkwardly on his shoulder after being pulled down by the Real Madrid captain.

Asked if he felt there was any intent in the challenge, Robertson said: "I don't know".

"I'm sure Cris will speak at the end of the season".

"I feel that I need to be playing every week".

Match victor Bale also cast doubt on his future at Real, although before the game the Wales forward's status in the team next season was by no means certain.
