The Pharaohs’ main star Mohamed Salah got a shoulder injury during the UEFA Champions League final and it was unsure whether or not he’ll be fit for the first game against Uruguay.

The Liverpool winger did not participate in the national team’s open training on Saturday and the national team doctor said that Salah status will be clear in two days.
