EGYPTIAN SALAH SHORTLISTED FOR FIFA PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD

LONDON, England- Egypt’s Mohamed Salah, was shortlisted on Tuesday (today), for world football governing body, FIFA’s player of the year award, after a season in which his goals carried Liverpool to the Champions League final, reported the BBC.

Salah, the top scorer in European club football last year, scored 44 goals for the Premier League side, in all competitions, and picked up player of the seasons honours in England, it added.

But his season ended in disappointment, when he was injured, in the first half of Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat by Real Madrid, in the Champions League final, and was then unable to prevent Egypt from sliding to three successive defeats at the World Cup in Russia.

FIFA said, it would name a final list of three nominees in early Sept, with the awards ceremony set to take place in London, on Sept 24.

Football fans can vote for their preferred nominee on FIFA’s website, with the result of the ballot taken into consideration, alongside the votes of national team coaches and captains, and selected journalists.
