However, Salah has bagged himself a morale-boosting goal on worldwide duty today as he's scored a stunning effort straight from a corner during Egypt's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Swaziland.
Salah has managed to score just three goals in his 11 matches in all competitions so far and has produced some frustrating performances for Liverpool in recent weeks with the attacker missing a number of chances that you'd have expected him to finish.
But there were concerning signs with Salah in heavy strapping at the end of the match as the forward briefly returning to action after treatment before being substituted a minute into stoppage-time.
However, Salah could not play for the entirety of the game as he was seen limping off the pitch in the last few minutes, much to the dismay of Liverpool and Egypt fans.
