Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has talked up Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, insisting the Egyptian can make a difference at the World Cup for his country next summer.
Salah has reached new heights this season at his new club, scoring 21 goals for the Reds in all competitions, and has more than justified the £37m the Reds paid Roma for his services.
He is currently the top goalscorer in the Premier League and looks set to contest the PFA Player of the Season award at the end of the campaign should he continue in the same vain.
Salah is getting plenty of love from fans and pundits, but another man who's been thoroughly impressed by the 25-year-old is Neymar, who randomly complimented him during an interview about next summer's World Cup.
Speaking with Globoesporte, he said: "The most well-known selections are the title favourites always. In addition to Brazil, there’s Germany, Spain, France and Argentina.

"These selections are highlights in any championship, right? I think surprisingly, Belgium have a great team. But Salah is a great player and can make a difference in the World Cup."
Salah pretty much dragged Egypt to the World Cup single-handedly, and the hopes of an entire nation to do anything of significance at the tournament rest entirely on his shoulders.
