Croatian defender Dejan Lovren, the associate of Egyptian Pharaoh Mohamed Salah of Liverpool, has revealed the team he will encourage at the 2022 World Cup, currently based in Qatar.
It is known that Egyptian Pharaoh Mohamed Salah, captain of Egypt, will miss the 2022 World Cup, which is now taking place in Qatar, after the Pharaohs failed to qualify for the major world football wedding, following their defeat to Senegal on penalties, after the first and second leg (1-1) draw in the play-off stage of the Africa Nations qualifiers.
“I know that Salah will be in the World Cup, in Doha.” The Egyptian Pharaoh will encourage his country “Croatia”.
With his question: Is the Egyptian star jealous of him? The Croatian defender responded: “Yes 100%, I too would have been jealous if Salah had participated in the World Cup and I don’t.”
The former Liverpool defender said: “But honestly I’m sad for Salah, he was close to qualifying for the World Cup, but unfortunately, Manny was better.”
Croatian defender Lovren has had a strong friendship with Egyptian Pharaoh Salah, since his move to Liverpool in the summer of 2017, before the Croatian defender left Anfield in the summer of last year, joining the ranks of Russian side Zenit Petersburg. “
It is worth mentioning that Croatia is preparing to face its Moroccan counterpart next Wednesday, at Al Bayt Stadium, in the first round of Group F competitions for the 2022 World Cup, and then Canada next Sunday, and Belgium on Thursday, December 1.
