Salah remains doubtful for WCup opener

Salah remains doubtful for WCup opener”

Team officials said his participation in Egypt's opener against Uruguay on Friday at Yekaterinburg remains uncertain.

Officially, The Pharaohs chose Grozny as Egypt´s camp although it is not hosting any matches in the tournament to keep a low profile, away from the media, as they prepare to make their World Cup finals return after an absence of 28 long years.

Salah sustained the injury in clash with Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos in the Champions League final in May 26th, casting a doubt over his hopes of leading the Egyptian challenge at Russian Federation 2018.

Salah jogged for about 30 minutes in a training session as his teammates worked on the same pitch in Grozny for the match in Ekaterinburg.

"He is doing [physiotherapy] sessions on his shoulder and working out in the gym", Leheita said.

Nonetheless, in an interview Egypt's managing director Ehab Lehita admitted that while Salah is making good progress, he can not confirm whether or not he will be fit to play by the time the game kicks off.

Salah, who scored 32 goals in 36 appearances for Liverpool and led his team to the Champions League final this season, is considered the main rival for Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the contest for the title of world's best footballer.

However, Salah did some light running in Grozny on Monday, monitored by medical staff, as the other Egypt players took part in a group warm-up.

Information from the Associated Press and Reuters was used in this report.
