Mohamed Salah had to be escorted off the pitch by military officers after the Liverpool forward was targeted by pitch invaders.
Scary scenes unfolded in the closing moments of Egypt's World Cup qualifier on Sunday against Sierre Leone when a group of supporters invaded the pitch and charged toward Salah.
Security rushed on to the field and formed a protective ring around the 31-year-old as chaos played out inside the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium in Liberia.
