Salah declared fit for Egypt but Russian Federation confident they can stop him

Mohamed Salah- World Cup 2018 Russia vs Egypt What time is kick-off tomorrow what TV channel is it on and what is our prediction

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's match in St Petersburg, Cuper again put himself at odds with his federation by insisting final medical checks must be carried out, although he expects Salah to face hosts buoyed by a 5-0 thrashing of Saudi Arabia.

Despite again declaring his star Mohamed Salah to be fit, Egypt boss Hector Cuper also said the Liverpool man is facing a late fitness test before facing Russian Federation in World Cup Group A.

"Salah is fit", Cuper said on Monday.

But Cherchesov said he was not particularly concerned. "To play in the World Cup and experience this atmosphere is a dream you hope will never end".

But the men in red are now on the cusp of making their first knockout stage of a World Cup in post-Soviet history.

"That is coach Hector Cuper's plan".

The achievement would be a huge relief for both players and Russians who anxious about being humiliated on the world's biggest sporting stage.

Salah, the Premier League's player of the season, is recovering from injuring his shoulder while playing for Liverpool in last month's Champions League final.

Ramos was accused of deliberately hurting Salah and it has been suggested opponents could target him again, particularly if his shoulder is not fully healed.

"Salah is the most powerful of their players, but he is not the only one".

Cavani is quoted as saying by Metro: "I took Salah's shirt as a gift for my children, who also see him as a star".

"He is important to us and I say that with all due respect to the other players in the Egyptian squad".

The 56-year-old megastar recorded a special song titled "El Farha El Leila", Arabic translation for "Tonight's Happiness, " when the team qualified for the World Cup after Egypt's 2-1 win over Congo.
