Mohamed Salah plays down Cristiano Ronaldo battle in Champions League final

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has warned he cannot win the Champions League final alone.
Salah scored his 10th goal of the tournament as Liverpool made it through despite a 4-2 defeat to Roma in their semi-final second leg on Wednesday.
That left him five goals behind Cristiano Ronaldo, who Salah will meet in the final in Kiev, Ukraine on May 26.
Salah, with 43 goals in all competitions this season for Liverpool, has been tipped to end the decade-long Ballon d'Or dominance of Ronaldo and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi - but the Egyptian insisted he will need his team-mates to win the Champions League.
"It is not going to be a final between Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo," he said, after Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win over his old club, Roma.
"I am playing for a great club and we have great players, so qualifying to the final came with great teamwork. I cannot do it alone - it is collective work.
"When we score a goal it's because we are all doing good, when we concede it means we all need to work harder."
