Egypt get Salah boost ahead of opener against Uruguay

Uruguay Stars Want Mohamed Salah Fit For The Opener Vs Egypt

Salah's fitness for entering the game has been the target of much speculation since he suffered a shoulder injury in Liverpool's Champions League final loss to Real Madrid on May 26.

Uruguay will play Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, while Egypt get to play Russian Federation on Tuesday.

Fans have been in suspense before Egypt's first World Cup finals in 28 years, but now they can at least know their star man will appear.

"I can nearly 100 per cent say he will play, save for any unforeseen factors at the last minute", Cuper said.

Cuper went further by predicting on the eve of the match that Salah could emerge as one of the tournament's most prolific goalscorers.

Cuper said officials would continue to monitor Salah during their training session Thursday.

This will be the first World Cup held in Europe since the 2006 tournament in Germany, and the first to be held in Eastern Europe.

The next few days and weeks will be the time to prove it because Suarez will be past his prime or even retired by the time the next World Cup comes around, in Qatar in 2022.

Uruguay had been the better side as Luis Suarez had missed four chances and Edinson Cavani had hit the inside of a post with a 25-yard free-kick.

Bradley, who led the United States national team during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, narrowly missed out on guiding Egypt to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after winning 7-of-8 matches in the unforgiving CAF qualifying format.

"Mo Salah is an extremely important player for us, nobody can deny that, but you need to have a good team, and we have a good team", Cuper said after the game.

"A risk of playing a match is something we can't hide".

"I will be the happiest person in the world", he said.

While more than half of his teammates hadn't been born yet, El-Hadary was just starting his career the last time Egypt qualified for a World Cup in 1990.
