Champions League final rocked by Mo Salah, Dani Carvajal injuries

Liverpool's Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah is comforted by Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp as he leaves the pitch after injury during the UEFA Champions League final

In 2014, Real Madrid's Xabi Alonso was suspended for the UEFA Super Cup after joining in on the celebrations after the Champions League final, for which he was already banned.

Salah suffered a dislocated shoulder after being dragged to the ground in a challenge by Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos midway through the first half.

Egyptian media reported Salah wouldn't kick a ball in anger for three weeks.

Sergio Ramos went unpunished for a challenge on Liverpool forward Mo Salah during the Champions League final but a petition has been launched to lobby Federation Internationale de Football Association and Uefa to consider retrospective bans in the future with the use of video reviews.

What do you make of Salah's antics in the CL final?

The Union's official Twitter account posted an image suggesting Ramos used the "forbidden arm-lock technique" to bring down Salah.

A clearly emotional Henderson was close to tears as he spoke in the bowels of the NSC Oliympiysky Stadium following the 3-1 loss to Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old was devastated after being substituted during Saturday night's final, and wept profusely as he left the field.

Champions League final: Zidane to start Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo against Liverpool
The Welshman scored the 2014 Champions League victor for the Los Blancos but started from the bench in the 2017 final at Cardiff. Ronaldo is bidding to join a group of players who have won the European Cup five times, including former Real great Di Stefano.

Salah appeared in a picture with Nusret Gokce, commonly known as Salt Bae, following his injury, which calmed a lot of his fans who went on a tweeting spree after the incident.

Carvajal said he had yet had a chance to speak with Lopetegui about his chances of being named to the final squad, but added: "Soon I will have a chance to meet with everyone and we will arrive at a conclusion".

'I'll ask for compensation, which could exceed €1 billion (£873 million), for the physical and psychological harm that Ramos gave Salah and the Egyptian people'.

The tycoon believes Salah will be observing fast during the final match today.

Shortly after the match, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp first described the injury as "really serious".

With retrospective action from UEFA highly unlikely most Reds are best off hoping for a Karmic ordering of the universe by Sergio Ramos getting injured before or during the World Cup.

Egypt will be at the World Cup for the first time since 1990 and face hosts Russia, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia in Group A.
