Mo Salah Exits Champions League Final vs. Real Madrid with Shoulder Injury

"I am pretty sure in the second before the game Real Madrid will be more confident than we are, but the game doesn't end in that second, it only starts", Klopp said. He was replaced by Nacho.

Now the entire nation of Egypt holds its breath, hoping Salah will be healthy for the country's first World Cup appearance since 1990.

Liverpool players were inconsolable at full time, needless to say, but once the pain of defeat subsides they can look back with huge pride at their achievements in the competition this term. There was no doubt, however, which injury threatened to have the more serious consequences.

Liverpool's Mo Salah leaves the field in tears after clashing with Sergio Ramos in the first half. As goalkeeping mistakes go, this was possibly the worst that has ever been seen on this stage.

Quite the contrast to Madrid's opener on 51 minutes, when Karius attempted to roll the ball out to a team-mate only for Benzema to stick out a hopeful leg which turned out to be a goalscoring interception.

Someone must have got it wrong at PBS.

The Reds will be desperate to add a sixth European Cup to their cabinet, particularly as they have lifted just two trophies since they became European champions in 2005, when they famously came back from 3-0 down at halftime to beat AC Milan on penalties in Istanbul. Dejan Lovren headed goalward from a corner and Sadio Mane nipped in front of Keylor Navas to poke home.

The Portuguese stars 15 goals so far in the tournament should be enough to finish as top scorer regardless of whether he scores at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium.

He scored a second later in the game following a poor piece of goalkeeping from Karius, but it's his first effort that will live long in the memory.
