During a World Cup loss, Egypt’s Mo Salah took his penalty after fans pointed a laser at his face.
How the world has been playing non-stop? This is something Egyptian football fans across the globe must have wondered after star player Mo Salah was about to take a penalty, but he was pointed in the face by a laser beam.
In the winner and loser match in the World Cup qualifying match, Salah took the penalty kick in the penalty shootout. Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane scored his goal, sending Senegal to the World Cup. Just like that, Salah and Egypt both played.
Lasers are never allowed all over Mo Salah
It’s heartbreaking for Egypt that they won’t travel to Qatar later this year for the World Cup, but did the team also have to watch the Senegal fans do this to Salah? It was simply impossible for him to fully concentrate on his shooting efforts with the laser beams all over his body.
How are these fans even allowed into the stadium with these lasers? Once security sees this happening, they need to force the fans to stop what they are doing and get them out of the stadium.
This is not an international friendly match. It is a game and a penalty shootout that decides which country will enter the World Cup. Playing in a tournament that happens every four years, is something these countries and teams work very hard on. To think that these lasers could cost Egypt a trip to it angers a lot of people out there.
Now, similarly annoyed fans will no longer wonder what might have happened if Salah hadn’t been so blatantly distracted.
