Rio Ferdinand praises Sergrio Ramos role in Mohamed Salah injury

An initial physio check seemed to clear Salah of any serious ramifications, however, after only a few moments trying to play on, the free-scoring Egyptian was down again.

With the match still goalless, Salah fell to the floor writhing in pain after his left shoulder got caught underneath Real captain Sergio Ramos as they fell to the floor in midfield.

Salah also played a big part in Egypt's qualification for the World Cup in Russian Federation next month - the first tournament they've qualified for since 1990.

Former Reds Steve McManamanan and Steven Gerrard are also on show, and both are very much in position to give their thoughts having won the Champions League in their playing careers. For years they were on that level and now are 30-something but still on that level.

The Reds will be hoping this acceleration will be on show one last time in the final en route to European glory.

"Comparing players with Ronaldo and Messi is something you can't do", said Ramos. Carvajal missed most of the semi-final through injury but is back in the side and will be in for a tough time up against Salah.

But it is the Champions League that really brings out the best in him.

"Salah is different but I have to say he has had a fantastic Champions League a fantastic league season, but Saturday, let's see".

Salah has bagged 44 goals and 16 assists in all competitions this season, while Ronaldo has the same number of goals and half as many assists, and the pair can add to their tallies in the final.

"But what if Messi and Ronaldo win the World Cup?"

"I know how I lost the finals, it didn't change my life", said Klopp, a two-time Bundesliga champion with Dortmund. "He is so calm, a man down to earth and he deserves every credit for every goal he scored for now and definitely we will help him achieve this dream".
