Premier League giants, Liverpool have blocked Mohamed Salah’s call up for International duty next month according to 90minutes.com.
The Pharaohs of Egypt will be involved in a double header against Angola and Gabon, in the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers next month.
Reports from England say, Egypt’s star man and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will not be allowed to travel to his native country for Egypt’s double header.
According to 90minutes.com, Egypt is on the UK red list, and so should the player travel to Egypt, he will be quarantine for ten days upon his return to Merseyside.
But he could still make the second match which is an away match to Gabon. The central African nations is not yet on the UK red list, and so will not require 10 days quarantine on condition that there is no positive case.
It should be noted that, in March this year, FIFA gave clubs in Europe a veto power to block international call ups of their players, reasons why the French clubs unanimously agreed not to release their players whose national teams are not in the EU during the March FIFA window.
But the Daily mail reported earlier this month that, the veto power to block players from obeying international call ups expired in April and this could cause the Egypt FA to go offensive.
