Mo Salah fit for Egypt's World Cup opener

Egypt’s star player Mohamed Salah is ”almost 100%” certain to feature in Friday’s World Cup opener against Uruguay.

That’s the word from head coach Hector Cuper, who says Salah was “doing very well” and has recovered “very, very quickly”.

“We’re trying to make him feel confident. The doctors are giving him the option to play or not, but I know Salah very well and I’m sure he’s not afraid, he’s not fearful.

“He could become the top goalscorer here and one of the greatest players.”

The Liverpool forward had injured his shoulder during the Champions League final against Real Madrid last month.
