Salah joins Egypt training session

Salah joins Egypt training session

Egypt have played down the claims made by forward Mohamed Salah that he will be ready for their first match at the World Cup against Uruguay.

Mohamed Salah joined the rest of Egypt's World Cup squad for warmup drills Tuesday and dribbled for the first time since injuring his left shoulder in last month's Champions League final.

Egypt will take to their first World Cup finals since 1990, after Salah himself fired them to Russian Federation with a last-minute penalty against Congo in a play-off fixture.

On Monday, Egypt's medical staff stated they remained unsure whether he would be fit for their opening game as he did not take part in a training session.

"There's a good degree of progress but no definitive decision on whether he takes part, as we are following his case day by day", he told reporters.

The Egypt worldwide won the PFA player of the year award ahead of Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne to cap an incredible first season at Liverpool FC.

Team doctor Mohamed Abou al-Ela said over the weekend that Salah would not play "unless he has totally recovered".

Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera has expressed hope that Salah will play against the South Americans, saying he wants to play against the best at football's showpiece tournament.
