World Cup Qualifiers: Salah escorted off by security personnel as pitch invaders targeted him

Liverpool and Egyptian star player, Mohamed Salah was targeted by numerous pitch invaders during Egypt's win over Sierra Leone on Sunday.

Salah secured an assist as former Aston Villa man Trezeguet scored twice for the African side in Liberia as Egypt continued their perfect start to qualifying for the World Cup in 2025.

The game ended in sour fashion as the home side ended the game with nine men, with Abdul Jarju Kabia and Derby County star Tyrese Fornah both being given their marching orders in the match.

While Fornah was sent off in the first half, Kabia was shown red deep into second half stoppage time with frustrations clear both in the stands and on the field.

Social media footage shows security racing onto the field of play as pitch invaders jumped the barriers and appeared to head towards Salah, with the Liverpool forward’s team-mates also gathering around him.

One video showed a number of individuals sprinting towards Salah as a number of unauthorised people appeared to target Salah.

Salah’s team-mate Mohamed Abdelmonem can be seen guarding his team-mate, with one invader changing his focus from Salah to running back for the stands, chased by officials.

A number of people – including security guards draped in hi-vis jackets – were on the field as the clip ended, but Salah appeared calm as he tried to evade the situation.
