El-Hadary: Mohamed Salah will be crucial against Russia
Egypt’s goalkeeper was surprisingly excluded from the starting lineup against Uruguay in the first fixture, and once he participates in the competition he will become the oldest player to ever take part of the World Cup.
El-Hadary talked to the journalists about the team’s pleasure in participation at the big stage and how they are approaching the next fixture against Russia.
“All players are very happy because we are at the World Cup. All the Egyptian people as well as the technical staff, we are all happy to be in Russia. We hope that God will be on our side, that’s what we are wishing for, only God’s help. However, we have prepared ourselves very well.
“We know very well why we are here, and we are determined to win our tie against Russia as it is our hope to qualify.
“We hope Mohammed Salah will be fit and ready to play as he will be crucial in the game tomorrow, just like the rest of the players.”
The Pharaohs will face the hosts at Saint Petersburg Stadium, and Salah is declared fit for the challenge as Egypt are hoping they will claim their first win ever in the competition.
