BREAKING NEWS: Salah almost certain to face Uruguay, says Cuper
Mohamed Salah is almost certain to feature in Egypt's World Cup opener against Uruguay on Friday, coach Hector Cuper said.
Salah suffered a shoulder injury in Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final last month but appears to have recovered in time to play a full part in Russia.
Speaking to reporters on the eve of the Group A clash, Egypt boss Cuper said: "Salah is doing very well indeed, he's recovered very quickly.
"We'll see how it goes today [Thursday]. I can almost assure you 100 per cent he'll play unless something dramatic happens today or tomorrow."
