Alexander-Arnold: Mohamed Salah will bounce back better and stronger
Liverpool and England defender Alexander-Arnold has backed Mohamed Salah to bounce back after Egypt’s World Cup elimination on Tuesday.
Mohamed Salah didn’t feature against Uruguay in Egypt’s World Cup opener, before playing the full 90 minutes against Russia, in where he managed to score a consolation penalty for the Pharaohs.
Club teammate Alexander-Arnold feels sorry for Salah, insisting the winger will come back better and stronger next season.
“It’s not good to see one of your team-mates not being able to take part in the first game of the World Cup for his nation in such a long time,” Alexander-Arnold said.
“He played a vital part in getting them there.
“I haven’t spoken to him, he’s in his team camp and it’s important for him to be with his national team at the minute and focus on getting his win in a World Cup when he plays again in the third game.
“I’m sure he’ll bounce back and next season he’ll come back fresh and better and stronger,” he added.
Uruguay’s narrow win against Saudi Arabia put them through alongside Russia, as they both sit top with six points, but Russia are ahead on goal difference.
The final round of group A will take place on Monday, June 25, and will see Egypt face Saudi Arabia for the third place, while Uruguay and Russia will battle out for the top spot.
