It is not a coincidence that the two oldest players in World Cup history are both goalkeepers, a position where the age range tends to skew older than most other soccer players.

A source reportedly told the broadcaster that Salah "feels exposed" what happened and "doesn't wish to engage in topics beyond football or to be used for anyone's political image".

The Egyptian team came under further scrutiny when Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov hosted a farewell dinner for the Pharaohs on Friday, giving star forward Mohamed Salah an honorary citizenship.

The Chechen controversy is the latest that Salah has experienced while on global duty, with the forward winning a battle against the Egyptian FA in April over the use of his image rights.

Salah, who also took part in a photo opportunity with Kadyrov, has been criticized by the British media for allowing the Chechen leader to use him to improve the government's global image.

"We utterly condemn the acceptance by Mo Salah of any honour from Ramzan Kadyrov's Chechnya".

While Sony did nothing, Nintendo and Microsoft just embraced cross-play
However, both Microsoft and Sony saw a significant downward trend in coverage whereas Nintendo experienced an increase. We suspect that the pressure placed on them by Fortnite players might be the reason Sony could change their minds.

A Russian state-funded news agency RT video shows Salah smiling as Kadyrov gives his speech and pins a badge bearing the Chechen flag to the Egyptian international's shirt.

According to the Independent, "Rights groups and Western governments allege that authorities in Chechnya repress their political opponents, discriminate against women and persecute sexual minorities, all allegations that Chechnya's leaders deny". He is eating and laughing with his team-mates. "He is training well and that means no problem".

Osama Ismail - a spokesman for the Egyptian football federation - has said that Salah has not commented on the situation. He posted "sorry but this is a major insult" on Twitter after they used his image in an advert for telecommunications company WE in April; Salah is sponsored by rival brand Vodafone.

However, despite this particular ongoing retirement controversy surrounding Salah, he's still expected to feature in Egypt's final game of the 2018 World Cup against Saudi Arabia.

The Egyptian's goals dragged Liverpool to last season's Champions League final against Real Madrid.
