Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah scored his first goal in almost a month in Fiorentina's 3-2 win over Empoli in Italy's Serie A on Sunday.

The Egyptian international, who played as a second half substitute, cleverly turned two defenders inside out to net his team's second goal 12 minutes following his introduction.

The 22-year-old player has not found the net since scoring his fourth Serie A goal in a 2-0 victory over Sampdoria on 4 April.

Salah, who joined Fiorentina on loan from Chelsea in the winter transfer window, has been outstanding with the Italian side, scoring eight goals in 22 appearances in all competitions.

He has quickly become a fan favourite in Florence, with Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella saying he was likely to remain at the club beyond the end of his current loan deal, which expires in the summer.

Fiorentina lie fifth in the Italian league table with 55 points, 25 behind leaders and champions Juventus.
