Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah was very lucky not to be shown a straight red card for a dangerous and reckless challenge on one of Porto’s players.
In the 84th minute of the match, Salah was beaten to the ball by Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira but the Reds superstar recklessly decided to follow through with his foot into Danilo’s lower leg. The referee did call for a foul but failed to show the Egyptian even a yellow card.
Salah is very fortunate to not be sent off for this, we imagine that Danilo will be in quite some pain over the next few days because of the dangerous challenge.

That’s a leg breaker. No doubt whatsoever, if that’s Jonjo Shelvey it’s a red. He’s a lucky boy. I suppose if the ref has already blown for a foul that might be why he hasn’t given it but in my honest opinion I think he should go
