Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah continued his perfect start in Italy after scoring his second Serie A goal in Fiorentina’s 1-1 draw with Torino on Sunday.

The Pharaohs star, who came on as a second-half substitute, put his side in front five minutes from time, superbly exchanging passes with Alberto Gilardino before firing a low shot that struck the keeper's hands and went in from inside the area.

However, Giuseppe Vives quickly restored parity after scoring for Torino three minutes later.

Salah took his tally to two league goals in as many league appearances.

The 22-year-old joined Fiorentina on loan from English Premier League leaders Chelsea last month until the end of the season after failing to book a regular place in the Blues' squad under coach Jose Mourinho.

He scored his first goal with Fiorentina and helped create the second during the 3-1 win over Sassuolo in the 23rd matchday of the Serie A last week.

On Thursday, He started the 1-1 first leg draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League round of 32.

Fiorentina lie fifth in the Serie A table with 39 points, 18 behind leaders Juventus.
