international has provided an update on the injury he picked up during Egypt’s 1-0 loss to on Tuesday.

The Los Angeles player, who started at left-back, was forced off 51 minutes into the game after falling down injured and was replaced by Ayman Ashraf.

His sudden exit sparked fears of another injury setback, espcially with the player missing his club’s pre-season due to a long-term injury.

He tweeted: “Thanks to everyone who checked on me, a sprain in the inner knee ligament, thank god for everything.”

Egypt’s next games will be against Kuwait on May, 26, before facing Colombia and Belguim on June 1 and June 6 respectively.

The Pharaohs were drawn in group A alongside Uruguay, Saudi Arabia and hosts Russia, with their first game coming against the South American side, then Russia and Saudi Arabia.
