Mohamed Salah Makes Young Syrian Refugee's Dream Come True

Mohamed Salah continuously shows why he's a gentleman on and off the pitch.

In some heartwarming news this fine summer day, Egyptian football star, Mohamed Salah, made a young fan’s dream come true after meeting him during Liverpool Football Club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

16 year-old Syrian refugee, Ammar Halabi, suffers from muscular dystrophy and fled war-torn Syria with his family two years ago.  “Everybody loves Salah and I want to be like him. He is a great person,”  said a chuffed Ammar, who also recieved a signed shirt from Salah. The meeting was set up by the Make-a-Wish foundation, a non-profit organisation aimed at fulfilling wishes for children with serious illnesses.
