Salah hopeful of making World Cup opener for Egypt

Salah hopeful of making World Cup opener for Egypt

Egyptian sensation Salah is recovering from a shoulder injury sustained in the Champions League final last month and the Liverpool forward missed Belgium's dominant 3-0 victory in Brussels.

But if the whole incident annoyed fans of the Premier League club, especially as it changed the game in Kyiv, then it was fans in Egypt who were no doubt even more annoyed with the World Cup just round the corner.

Ramos aimed a dig at Salah last week as he suggested that Salah could have played on.

Asked if he could have played on if he had an injection, Salah replied: 'My comment is that it's always okay when the one who made you cry first, then makes you laugh.

"Leaving the final was the worst moment of my career", the 25-year-old told Marca.

"Yes, it was", he added.

After saying his recovery is going well, Salah remembers "when I hit the floor, there was a mix of physical pain and worry". He is expected to return to action during the group stage in Russian Federation after suffering the injury during Liverpool's Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.

Egypt worldwide winger Mohamed Salah spoke about the strengths of the Egyptian national team and what he and his teammates are trying to achieve in the World Cup. "I think I've improved with him".

Fortunately for Salah, it seems he will be fit for the World Cup and hopes to play a part in Egypt's opener against Uruguay on June 15. I will support Egypt in the World Cup for him.

Salah conceded that qualifying for the World Cup for the first time in 28 years is an achievement in itself for Egypt.

"He's helped me to defend better, but he also finds a way to make it easier to attack". I wish Salah the best and hope he returns. Of course, people can now say, 'OK, we've qualified, that's it.' But for me it's not like that, we want to make history; achieve something different.

Nigeria turned in a disappointing performance in their final tune-up, losing 1-0 to the Czech Republic who failed to qualify for the World Cup. "That doesn't go through my head", he said.
