Mohamed Salah chosen among members of world’s football team



The French sports news magazine, France Football, has chosen the Egyptian footballer and winger of the English club of Liverpool Mohamed Salah as one of the 11 players who will play within the world’s football team.

The world football team includes 11 of  the most recognized and professional footballers from around the world. The team makes an appearance at the end of each World Cup tournament and plays an honorary match.

The magazine’s choice of Salah to be a member of the team is based on his effective role in pushing Egypt towards the qualifying round of the 2018 World Cup in Russia for the first time after 28 years of absence from the World Cup.

Similarly, the renowned sports news website of Bleacher Report also chose Salah as one of six players nominated by the website to be members of the world football team. The list also included Argentina footballer Messi, and the Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.

Liverpool officially announced in June that it has completed a £39 million, five-year signing of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah.

The 25-year-old winger spent two seasons at Roma where he scored 29 goals in 65 Serie A appearances. In 2016, Salah was selected as the best player in the Roma team in a popular referendum.
