Video: Chelsea star Salah scores 17th goal for his country

Mohamed Salah scored for Egypt in a 3-2 loss against Chile last night.

In January Chelsea snapped up Mohamed Salah from under the nose of Premier League rivals Liverpool in a £11 million deal from Swiss giants FC Basel.

It was a deal which brought in a player who had showed off his talent on many an occasion against English opposition in European football - and the Egyptian has certainly looked a talent at Stamford Bridge.

In what has been something of a settling in period for him since January he has demonstrated his cool finishing and lightning pace on a couple of occasions this term, his ability to time runs beyond the last man in particular a trait Jose Mourinho will be fond of.

And he showed off these talents once again last night. He featured for Egypt in an international friendly against Chile yesterday. Chile, who unlike Salah's Egypt are at the World Cup, won the game 3-2 - but only after a scare from The Pharaohs.

Egypt led 2-0 in the first-half, and it was Salah who got the ball rolling with a trademark goal.

More impressive is his tally for the international team. Salah has now scored an incredible 17 goals in 28 games for his country.

Not bad for a winger.
