VIDEO: Egyptian duo feature as Basel lose to Dortmund
Mohamed Salah and El-Nenny started in Basel’s final pre-season friendly on Wednesday as the Swiss champions lost 3-1 to Borussia Dortmund at St. Jakob Park.
Egypt internationals Mohamed Salah and Mohamed El-Nenny both featured for FC Basel in the first 45 minutes against the 2013 Champions League finalists in a 3-1 friendly loss on Wednesday.
The Egyptian duo were likely replaced at the interval due to fatigue from fasting, although Salah – who assisted three times in Basel’s two previous friendlies – looked lively during the first-half with some trademark runs and was unlucky not to score.
New Dortmund signing Henrik Mkhitaryan setup Marco Reus’ opener before scoring his own after Basel temporarily equalized through Fabien Schar. Jonas Hofmann struck late to seal the victory for the visiting German giants.
Basel open their Swiss league title defense at home against newly promoted FC Aarau this Saturday.
