Mo Salah hit by missiles from Senegal fans in shocking footage after World Cup loss amid claims star was racially abuse

MOHAMED SALAH was hit by missiles while being escorted off the pitch following Egypt's penalty shootout defeat to Senegal on Tuesday night.

And since the ugly scenes took place the Egyptian FA have alleged that their team and Salah "in particular" was subjected to racist chants from the Senegal fans.




Salah's Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane scored the winning spot-kick in the penalty shoot-out as Senegal beat Egypt to reach the World Cup in a repeat of the Afcon final.

Yobs targeted Egypt’s players with dangerous laser pens throughout the play-off final second leg in Senegal’s capital Dakar.

The Pharaohs’ penalty takers were peppered by the lights during the shootout as three of their four takers missed.

Salah was among those targeted before blasting his effort wildly over the bar – before Mane fired Senegal to Qatar 2022 at his expense.

It was another disappointing night for Salah and his country as they were once again defeated by Senegal on spot kicks.

The Egypt skipper was then led down the tunnel by security staff as fans invaded the pitch.

And new footage shows objects being hurled at the Liverpool superstar as he made his way to safety.

A damning statement from the Egyptian FA was later released.

They said: "The Egypt national team have been exposed to racism with offensive signs in the stands against the Egyptian players in general, and Mohamed Salah in particular.

"The crowd also intimidated the players by throwing bottles and rocks on them during the warm-up.  

"The Egyptian group's busses have also been exposed to assaults that led to broken windows and injuries; filed with pictures and videos as proof in the complaint submitted."

Meanwhile, Salah is set to return to England this week ahead of Liverpool's Premier League clash against Watford on Saturday.

Three days later the Reds then travel to Portugal to take on Benfica in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
