Despite Egypt’s ultimate capitulation against Ghana, it’s worth noting that Mohamed Salah was the joint top scorer in CAF’s World Cup Qualifying programme.
Admittedly, his start to live at Chelsea since moving in January was sluggish. The forward only managed two in his ten Premier League appearances, but impressed with his speed and movement and should enjoy more prominence under Jose Mourinho this term.
With Andre Schurrle linked with a move to Spain, Salah could emerge as a key man.
Last year he managed five goals in ten European appearances for Basel before moving clubs, he would do well to emulate such numbers again for Chelsea this term.
