Egypt said on Twitter that team doctor Mohammed Abulela was in contact with Liverpool's medical team and had been told Salah sprained his shoulder ligaments - but Liverpool hasn't confirmed that.

Reported to have suffered a sprain in his shoulder ligaments, Salah remains doubtful for the World Cup in Russian Federation, with the clock ticking before Egypt's first game against Uruguay on June 15.

About five minutes later, Salah left the field in tears after being forced to exit the biggest game of his career.

The duo has been in electric form this season, and the Egyptian, in particular, was touted to lead the English team to a possible Champions League triumph.

The seven-time African champions have this year reached the World Cup for the first time since 1990. He is in hospital for an X-ray.

Until Salah's injury, Liverpool had been on top, but following the shocking incident, they went on to lose due to a combination of two goalkeeping howlers by Loris Karius and a superb Gareth Bale goal.

Egyptian Salah tweeted on Sunday: "It was a very tough night, but I'm a fighter".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp compared Sergio Ramos' challenge on Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final to wrestling.

Started by user "Mohamed Salah Abdel-Hakeem", the petition's description reads: 'Sergio Ramos intentionally kept Mohamed Salah's arm under his armpit, causing dislocation of his shoulder.

Per Luke McBride of Kingfut.com, a close friend of Salah named Aly Mazhar set the timetable for his return at two to three weeks. I feel sorry for my team. "From what I said so far it doesn't look really good".

Salah finished top scorer in the just concluded English Premier League season and was expected to lead the attack line for Egypt when the World Cup kicks off next month in Russian Federation.

The Pharaohs are pooled alongside Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay in Group A. They play their first game against the South Americans on 15 June.
