Manchester City FC’s Salah has a long way to go to catch Diego Maradona’s tally of 41 goals for Argentina in the 1978 World Cup, but last year’s most valuable player runner-up in the English Premier League continues to star for Liverpool FC.
Through 18 matches of the season, Salah has scored 13 goals, tied for fourth-best in the English Premier League with Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku. His best shot may have been saved by Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes earlier this month when he charged toward his goal in the 91st minute and then was unable to beat him with an attempt.
Salah is a true goal-scorer and has been since his debut for Basel, Switzerland, in the 2014-15 season. He has scored 48 goals in the last two seasons for clubs in three different countries and figures to be a star on a team looking to challenge the Premier League’s throne as the world’s best domestic soccer league.
