Mohamed Salah put his recent struggles with Liverpool behind him on Friday night by scoring a brace for Egypt in their 3-0 win over Niger.
The 30-year-old struck in every half, taking him to 49 caps after just 86 games.
His opening goal was vintage Salah, as the winger picked up the ball on the left side of the penalty area, skipped past a defender and fired the ball into the far corner from close range. He added a penalty in the second half.

It will be a welcome return after struggling with Liverpool this season
It will be a welcome return for Salah after a difficult start to the season.
While 2 goals in 6 league games is hardly a disaster, it is a disappointing return for Salah given the stunning form he has displayed at Liverpool in recent seasons, and the Reds’ performances have suffered accordingly.
They are currently eighth in the Premier League after six games as injuries held the squad back.

Combined with the loss of Liverpool legend Sadio Mane, it was hard to watch for the Anfield stalwarts.
They hope Salah can bring his international form back to club football if Jurgen Klopp’s side face Chelsea after the break.
Before that, Salah will get another chance to get on the Egyptian scoresheet when his side faces Liberia on Tuesday.
