Mo Salah considering quitting Egypt national team

He is said to have suffered a heart attack just before he was scheduled to deliver commentary on his team's Group A performance on the Nile Sports channel.

Colleagues rushed him to a medical care department in the building, before then taking him to the French Qasr Al-Aini Hospital, where doctors attempted to resuscitate him for over half an hour. A source with knowledge of Salah's position on the matter confirmed this stance to ESPN FC, adding that the player is now considering his future with his national team.

Liverpool's Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah thanked Egyptian fans for their support during the World Cup, saying he apologises for failing to fulfill their ambitions. Last season's Premier League top scorer was initially omitted from the starting XI before appearing in the team in a revised version of the line-up.

But Salah, 26, was hopeful Egypt could return to the world stage in 2022 and improve next time around.

The 45-year-old goalkeeper flew to his right to make a spectacular stop in the 39th minute from Fahad Al-Muwallad's spot-kick, awarded for handball, at the Volgograd Arena.

Mondragon was 43 and three days when he faced Japan at the World Cup finals in Brazil four years ago.

But in the three and half years of the rule, there has been perpetual sparring between PDP and BJP over several issues. It was different this time given that negotiations were on with Pakistan, terrorists and separatists.

The Pharaohs went out of the tournament with a whimper as they crashed to a 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia, meaning they leave Russian Federation without a point from their three group games.
