Liverpool's talismanic striker Mohamed Salah's first appearance in a Champions League final ended in tears as the Egyptian worldwide was forced off with a suspected shoulder injury in the 31st minute of Saturday's final in Kiev against Real Madrid.

"It is a serious injury".

"He is in the hospital for an X-ray".

The Premier League giants were unable to upset Real Madrid in the decider in Kiev on Saturday, suffering a 3-1 defeat. "It doesn't look good".

The injury took place due to a challenge for the ball between Salah and Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

As well as the tweets, a petition set up on change.org demanded that Federation Internationale de Football Association and Uefa take action against Ramos for "deliberately" hurting Salah.

The 25-year-old tried to continue but went down to the turf once again four minutes later in obvious pain and pointing to his left shoulder, before he was replaced by Adam Lallana.

The injury now puts Salah's World Cup prospects in jeopardy, though he will have to await a doctor's scan before any decision is made.

The Real Madrid defender already missed the 2016 Euros after suffering a Champions League final a year ago, replaced in the squad by Hector Bellerin. Real Madrid's Dani Carvajal also left the match in tears after an apparent hamstring injury, leaving Spain losing its collective mind just ahead of the World Cup.

The news will not only be welcoming to Egyptians but also the Liverpool fans, who, if some reports were to be believed, could have expected a full pre-season without their main talisman.

Now the entire nation of Egypt holds its breath, hoping Salah will be healthy for the country's first World Cup appearance since 1990. He lost the final, left his teammates alone and saw the World Cup in Russian Federation endangered.

"[I'm] obviously devastated. It is the worst feeling I have had in football", Henderson said.
