Mohamed Salah still a doubt for World Cup opener against Uruguay


Mohamed Salah still a doubt for World Cup opener against Uruguay

Mohamed Salah gave Egypt's 2018 Soccer World Cup hopes a huge boost on Wednesday when he joined a squad training session at their Grozny base.

Gronzy: Mohamed Salah, a star attraction ahead of football's 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, has made headlines for a smiling photo with Ramzan Kadyrov, strongman of Chechnya where his Egypt team have set up camp.

However, an AFP reporter saw the forward take part in his first training session since the injury, going through a range of warm-up exercises with his teammates.

Klopp is keen to land a new No 1 this summer, especially following Loris Karius' horror show in the Champions League final against Real Madrid last month. "However, I can not confirm today that he will play in the first match", Lehita said of the 25-year-old, who scored 44 goals for Liverpool last season.

Uruguay are the favourites in Group A, which also includes hosts Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, who kick off the World Cup on June 14. "All I can say is that we hope he will play in this match".

Prior to boarding the flight to Russia, Salah trained for the first time with his Egypt team-mates and seemed in good spirits as a miraculous recovery looked as if it had been achieved.

"I'm with Luis (Suarez), I like the best players to play, I train with the best and I want the best players to play", said Muslera.
