Egypt forward Mohamed Salah scored his second goal in Liverpool's pre-season games as the Reds thrashed Napoli 5-0 in Dublin on Saturday.

Salah, fondly nicknamed Mo by Liverpool supporters, made it 3-0 in the 58th minute after the team had taken a 2-0 lead in the first half via goals from James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum.

The 26-year-old netted with a trademark left-foot curler from inside the area to continue his fine run following the World Cup in Russia, where he looked not fully fit but still scored two goals in two appearances with Egypt.

Salah was also on target when Liverpool defeated Premier League champions Manchester City in their International Champions Cup friendly match late last month.

The former AS Roma man enjoyed a debut season to remember with Liverpool last term, finishing as the Premier League top scorer with 32 goals - a record tally in a 38-match top-flight campaign.

He also earned a host of individual awards after scoring 44 goals in all competitions as Liverpool finished fourth in the Premier League and reached the UEFA Champions League final.
