The Liverpool forward aggravated an on-going ankle injury in Sunday’s 3-1 victory over Manchester City and the Egyptian Football Association has confirmed he has pulled out of their squad.

It is a blow for new Egypt coach Hossam El-Badry has his side have looked goal-shy in their previous two matches during his tenure, narrow 1-0 friendly home wins over Botswana and Liberia.
