VIDEO: Mohamed Salah scores as Basel win in season-opener

Egypt’s scored ’s first goal of the season in their Super League opener on Saturday, as the Swiss champions won 3-1 against FC Aarau.

Egypt internationals Mohamed Salah and El-Nenny both stared for FC Basel on Saturday against recently promoted FC Aarau, with Salah scoring the opener – finishing off some brilliant link-up play from inside the box.

Raúl Bobadilla doubled the lead for the Swiss champions after 64 minutes, while Mohamed El-Nenny – who signed for Basel on a four-year deal from Arab Contractors in May – assisted the third goal scored by Basel’s top scorer last season, Marco Streller.

Salah, 21, was replaced by Stephan Andrist five minutes before full-time, shortly after Argentine Pablo Garat scored a consolation goal for Aarau  – their first Super League goal in three years.

Basel’s next game will be against Swiss Cup champions Grasshoppers at Lezigrund next Sunday.
