Salah Declared Fit For Egypt Opener Vs Uruguay

Egypt should fancy their chances of reaching the second round as aside from hard opponents Uruguay‚ they also have hosts Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia in their pool‚ the two lowest ranked sides in the entire tournament.

Horns blasted, snack-sellers hollered and chants of "Come Salah, Come Salah!" rang through the capital's stadium, crowded by thousands of fans keen to encourage their team ahead of their first World Cup appearance since 1990.

"He's prepared a lot, he's got the right mindset for this World Cup, and I do believe he's meeting all my expectations". I know Salah very well, he's not fearful, we always know we're running a risk when playing a match, that's something we can't hide.

"It's a statistic, a rather special one. We've thought about what we have to do and have taken precautions". "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. "We have enormous respect for our opponents".

The star striker, who turned 26 on Friday, suffered the injury three weeks ago in his English Premier League club Liverpool's 3-1 Champions League defeat by Real Madrid.

Salah was Egypt's top scorer throughout the World Cup qualifiers, notching a total of five goals from six games, also making him the highest scoring player in the entirety of the CAF Third Round of qualifying.

"I can nearly assure you 100 percent he'll play", Cuper said in the pre-match press conference.

Like Salah, Ali has a passion for the sport, but he is the first to admit that he is not on the Egyptian's footballing level and may never accomplish what he has.

The 62-year-old Argentinian added: "Salah is very good and he's recovered very quickly". We are not going to change our system because of him.
