Epic Arabic Commentary of Mo Salah Wonder Goal [for British football club Liverpool] Against [Italian club] Roma Causes Online Frenzy + Gerrard Reactions

Arabic commentary on Mo Salah’s goals is something else – translation below.


“There are spaces, and Mohamed Salah is on their left… Mohamed Salah: goal or no? Salaaaaaaah! Ohhhh! What is this? What is this, o Salah? Sultan of the English premier league. This is him, the star of the Egyptian game, the pride of the Arab game! Perfect! Perfect!”

It was uncertain whether Mohamed Salah, the best known Egyptian football player, would be able to play in the World Cup in Russia, due to an injury. However, the latest information is that he has recovered and will play today in Egypt‘s first match of the tournament, against Uruguay.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

“There is still a lot of dissatisfaction in Egypt: life is becoming more and more expensive and ordinary Egyptians are barely able to afford it, while the rich are getting richer, the youth has no future prospects, and especially in this time Mo Salah gives them hope”, says Saad El Hamus [Egyptian actor, now living in the Netherlands].

It is Mohamed Salah’s birthday today.
