Arsenal boss believes Egyptian winger will carry on his magnificent performance this season when Egypt goes to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years. 

The Egyptian winger has hit the ground running after joining the Reds from Roma last summer, bagging 36 goals to his name and becoming the English Premier League’s current top scorer with 28 goals.

Salah starred for Egypt in their most recent friendly game against Portugal, where he scored the Pharaoh’s goal in their 1-2 defeat, and will be leading the side in the upcoming World Cup in Russia.

“For me, he’s one of the best players in Europe at the moment,” the Gunners manager told beIN Sports.

The 25-year-old played a key role in Egypt’s African Cup of Nations campaign, which was held early in 2017. He guided the Pharaohs to the final game, which they lost 2-1 to Cameroon.

“He can score goals against anybody because in England you have many good defenders and he’s top scorer in the Premier League,” he added. “He’s scored in Italy and in England.”

“So overall, I think to keep him quiet will be very difficult at the World Cup,” Wenger concluded.
