Mohammed Salah's pair of his boots have been added to the world famous Egyptian collection at the British Museum.

The 25-year old also played a key role in Egypt's qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and is set to feature for his country in Russian Federation next month.

Neal Spencer, assistant keeper of the museum's Ancient Egypt and Sudan department, said the boots were an important exhibition of modern Egyptian history.

He added: "Displayed amidst the statues of ancient pharaohs, we now show the boots with which Mo Salah won the Golden Boot for Liverpool".

The Egypt global has earned huge popularity at home, in the United Kingdom and around the world after his performances for the Reds and for leading his nation to the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.


This season, Salah has scored 44 goals in 51 games with Liverpool, and next week he will be leading the Reds' attack in the Champions League final in Kiev.

With Real Madrid and Liverpool set to meet in the UEFA Champions League final next weekend, it has now been claimed that Brazilian fullback Marcelo is petrified of coming up against African superstar Mohamed Salah.

The pair of boots will be on display among the biggest collection of Egyptian objects outside of Egypt, including the Rosetta Stone, an ancient decree issued during the Ptolemaic dynasty in 196BC.

"This acquisition builds on our recent project to acquire objects to tell the story of day-to-day life in 20th and 21st century Egypt".
