Chechnya leader grants Mo Salah honourary citizenship

World Cup 2018: Egypt complain about referee Enrique Caceres after Russia defeat

Salah was then presented with a silver plate and a signed shirt of Chechen football team FC Akhmat Grozny, the club for which Kadyrov formerly served in the capacity of chairman and is named in honor of his late father.

"At a gala dinner, which I gave in honour of the Egyptian team, I handed Mohamed Salah a copy of the decree and a badge".

The Leicester City striker struck twice in the second half to keep the Super Eagles in with a chance of reaching the last-16. The penalty was awarded after a video review showed that Alfred Finnbogason had been brought down by Tyronne Ebuehi .

The Chechen leader asked Salah to accompany him back to the stadium, where the two posed for photos and greeted the 5,000 fans watching Egypt practice.

Egypt had lost to the hosts Russian Federation 3-0 on June 19 in Saint Petersburg while Saudi Arabia were defeated 1-0 in the second fixture of Group A in 2018 FIFA World Cup against Uruguay, the results that mean that Both Egypt and Saudi Arabia are officially knocked out.

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.

During a ceremonial banquet on Friday, Salah was officially bestowed citizenship by Kadyrov who, after a short speech, pinned a broach of the Chehen flag onto the striker's Egypt training shirt to symbolically confirm the honor.

"We don't use this kind of thing for politics", he said. "Mohamed Salah is the best footballer in the world, and an overall flawless person".
