Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, experienced a terrifying ordeal during his visit to Sierra Leone: he was the victim of a chilling attack by a fan during an African World Cup Qualifying match for the 2026 Canada, Mexico, and United States tournament. The Egyptian player achieved an important milestone and became one of the best players in his team’s away victory, but local fans were not happy with the result and sought to target the winger as he entered the field.
The victory of Egypt had the Premier League figure as its protagonist, not because of his goals, but because of an unexpected pitch invasion. Near the final whistle, Salah watched as a fanatic jumped from the stands with the intention of attacking him, but was stopped by his teammates and later by the stadium security forces. He had to be escorted by the military after the match. Some of the photographers present captured the moment of the commotion on the field and one could see a fan attempting to kiss the player’s feet, while another wore a Manchester City jersey.
It is worth noting that the match took place at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Liberia. The incident spoiled another victory for the Egyptian team in their World Cup qualifying campaign. Trezeguet’s brace secured three more points, allowing Salah to rest after scoring four goals in the previous match. Even so, in a lackluster performance by the winger, he provided a magnificent assist in the 0-2 that sealed the game.
Before the victory against Sierra Leone, Salah shone with his national team. At 31 years of age, Mohamed is getting closer to being considered the greatest African player in history. But to reach that pinnacle, he must lead his nation to the ultimate sporting event, which is why he started off motivated: he demolished Djibouti in the match held in Cairo with four goals in a 6-0 victory, further elevating his stature.
It is worth remembering that one of Al-Ittihad’s main objectives to strengthen its squad is precisely Mohamed Salah. As reported by David Ornstein in The Athletic a few months ago, Liverpool rejected a verbal offer to sign the 31-year-old Egyptian winger, but the Arabs would not easily give up. The Reds specifically rejected a $180 million offer in September. Salah signed a new three-year contract with Liverpool this year, making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history on a salary of around $430,000 per week.
