How many days before the tournament starts do we have to let Salah go?

BTW, FIFA does no longer even pretend they give a fuck about the clubs anymore, 3 matches during SA qualifying rounds so the players will miss the first game after the break every time. Arab Cup in December Africa Cup in January, when will this shit stop?

I didn’t think Mo was going to this? I thought it was decided long time ago, No to Olympics and no to this, because of World Cup and Afcon.

Guess we will see what happens, don’t think it was confirmed eithier way.

Because I hadn’t heard I had hoped it had been dropped. I do have a feeling we might lose Salah for only one of these two tournaments.

Yeah I could have sworn Salah had been ruled out of this one. Thought I saw their manager also say that he will be focusing on Egyptian players who are outside of Europe.

You see, the thing is this is the dress-rehearsal for Q22 and FIFA will ensure a good show. There are just a handful of recognizable players among all the participating countries and Salah is the crown jewel of the lot.

They should have held a totally different tournament then.

No offence @Iftikhar, but it’s because of OPs like this that we need a thumbs down button.
