I'm on the mend, Salah tells Egypt's president

I'm on the mend, Salah tells Egypt's president

Egypt begin their World Cup campaign against Uruguay in Russian Federation next Friday.

Salah, Egypt's great scoring hope for the World Cup, is still recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered in the Champions League final as Liverpool lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.

Egypt boss Hector Cuper recently suggested that Salah could be fit for their World Cup opener against Uruguay on June 15. I wish Salah the best and hope he returns.

Last October, the Liverpool winger scored twice in the win over Congo that qualified Egypt, nicknamed the Pharaohs, for their third finals - and their first since 1990. "If we want to go far in the World Cup, we'll have to be as solid as we were tonight and keep our energy".

While Ramos was largely vilified for his role, he defended his actions and said he had sent a message of support to Salah - whose place in the World Cup came under threat from the injury.

Salah denied Ramos" claim that he was "okay' following their conversation on the incident. I was also angry and sad that I couldn't continue playing. He left the pitch in tears and it was initially feared he would be ruled out of the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer altogether with a dislocated shoulder.

But speaking prior to the team's departure for Russia, Salah spoke positively of his chances of lining up in Yekaterinburg.

"Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation are the other teams in Egypt's group. That was a devastating thought". "I promise to do my best for our people". Of course, you can then say "right, we've got there, that's that", but for me it's not like that. We are strong as a group, we all have the same goal, to help the team win the game, that is the most important thing.

However, after scoring 44 goals in his debut season with Liverpool, he says he wants to make history with his country in Russian Federation - he's not going there with the mentality that reaching finals is enough.

"In my head, the pressure is to achieve something different from what we have done before".

"It's not a simple case of going, playing three games and thank you very much".
