VIDEO: Salah on target as FC Basel come from behind to down Lausanne

Mohamed Salah was once again on target for FC Basel in their 2-1 comeback at FC Lausanne-Sport on Sunday.

After finding themselves trailing 14th minutes into the match at the Stade Olympique de la Pontaise through a goal from Salim Khelifi, Swiss champions Basel equalized six minutes from the interval thanks to a decent strike from Egypt hotshot Salah.

Salah struck a strong low shot with his left foot from just outside the box which bounced off the post and off the keeper’s head to level the score for Basel minutes before half time. Although the strike was at first recorded as Salah’s third league goal of the season, the official website of the Swiss Super League later awarded it to goalkeeper Fickentscher, as an own goal.

Swiss-Albanian centre-back Arlind Ajeti headed home Delgado’s corner on the 60th minute to seal the comeback for Basel.

Salah was substituted five minutes from full time, while Egypt team-mate Mohamed El-Nenny played the full 90 minutes in central midfield after recently recovering from a shoulder injury.

The Egyptian duo who both joined Basel from Arab Contractors have been named in Bob Bradley’s final squad ahead of Egypt’s crucial World Cup qualifying play-off at Ghana on October 15.

The win keeps Basel on top of the league with 22 points, three ahead of Grasshoppers who still have a game in hand.
