Mohamed Salah provides update on availability against Uruguay

Egypt international provided an update on his availability for the Pharaohs’ World Cup opener against Uruguay following his arrival in Russia.

Salah was part of the Egyptian delegation that arrived in Grozny, Egypt’s base for the World Cup, on Sunday afternoon.

The Liverpool winger didn’t take part in the team’s first open training session in Russia, as he is still recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in the Reds’ Champions League final loss to Real Madrid late in May.

The training session which was held few hours after the team’s arrival in Russia was attended by thousands of fans as well as Chechen Republic president Ramzan Kadyrov.

When asked whether he’ll be ready for the team’s opener against Uruguay, Salah said: “I’m preparing and things are going well.”


“We will see what happens in the upcoming days,” Salah told beIN Sport satellite channel after the training session.

The 25-year-old also said it’d be hard to predict the Pharaohs’ journey in Russia. “But we all have hopes for the World Cup. We will enjoy the atmosphere and the tournament and, God willing, we will put in good performances,” he added.

Egypt, who will be making their first World Cup appearance in 28 years, will kick off their World Cup group stage campaign against Uruguay at the Ekaterinburg Arena on June 15. They will play against hosts Russia at the Saint Petersburg Stadium four days later and will face Saudi Arabia in their final group game at the Volgograd Arena on June 25.
