Liverpool ace Salah takes selfie with Nigeria coach after Egypt defeat

Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah has left Egyptians bemused after their Africa Cup of Nations opening match defeat to Nigeria.

Salah took a selfie with a member of Nigeria’s backroom staff after Egypt were condemned to defeat.

Salah, a talisman for his country on the international stage, was kept quiet in the clash – and later left the pitch looking crestfallen at full-time.

To make matters potentially worse for him, he was asked to take a picture by a coach, but duly agreed to it in a touch of real class.

In footage now widely shared across social media, the forward looked to walk off the field before being pulled over by the star-struck individual.

The coach, seemingly with his phone already in hand, then took the snap he will remember for a lifetime, with Salah just about managing to hide his disappointment.

Salah even placed his arm around his fan, further underlining his sportsmanship.
