Associated Press

Liverpool forward Eden Hazard has said he will support Egypt in the World Cup because of his friendship with Mohamed Salah, according to ESPN FC.

“Egypt have good players. We managed to take control of the match and scored an early goal which made things easier for ourselves,” Chelsea’s Hazard told ON Sport (h/t Sportskeeda).

“We are glad about defeating Egypt 3-0. I wish Salah the best and hope he returns. I will support Egypt in the World Cup for him.

“Egypt are so different without Salah but they still performed well with compact lines. Their playing style is close to that of Tunisia.

“I spoke with Salah after the Champions League final and sent him a message. As I said, he is my friend and I want to see him in the World Cup.”

Additionally, Salah’s agent took to Twitter to deny reports claiming that representatives had offered Salah to Barcelona.
