It was a night to forget for Mo Salah! Penalty miss and Egypt were knocked out of the World Cup by Senegal on Tuesday.
Salah was targeted with dozens of lasers before he stepped up to take a crucial penalty and ended up blasting it over the bar. Footage circulating on social media shows the Egyptian covered in a green light before taking the kick and missed it as Senegal advanced on penalties to secure a spot in the World Cup finals.
In their previous match, Egyptian supporters had used the same tactic to distract the Senegalese players.
Sadio Mane scored the winning penalty as Senegal booked a spot in the upcoming World Cup.
