After scoring his second goal for Fiorentina in the 1-1 draw with Torino on Sunday, Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah celebrated his goal on Twitter, asking the team to think of the coming game against Tottenham in the Europa League on Thursday.

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.

"Viva Viola," Salah wrote on his Twitter account after the game.

Fiorentina's coming game will be against English Premier League side Tottenham in the second leg of Europa League round of 32 on Thursday after the first leg in England last week finished 1-1.

"Now let's think of the game against Tottenham," the Egyptian winger wrote.

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 for Fiorentina and helped create the second during the 3-1 win over Sassuolo in the 23rd matchday of the Serie A last week.
