Salah was forced off in the half hour mark with what appeared to be a shoulder injury after landing awkwardly under a challenge from Ramos.

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.

But it now appears there is a good chance Salah will be able to join his country for the tournament in Russian Federation.

"It was a very tough night, but I'm a fighter", he said on Instagram. "Despite the odds, I'm confident that I'll be in Russian Federation to make you all proud", Salah wrote on his official Twitter account on Sunday.
