Salah in good shape during Egypt World Cup photo shoot

Salah responds to Ramos' comments about Champions League injury

"Salah is training individually under the supervision of the team's medical staff while the Pharaohs are holding their second training session in Grozny", reads a statement from the Egyptian Football Association's official website.

The Egyptian national team director Ehab Leheita revealed that Mohamed Salah's participation in Egypt's World Cup opening match against Uruguay has not been confirmed yet. "God willing I'm well-prepared and things are going well and my morale is high", Salah told AFP.

"He is gradually getting better".

Salah teased the camera with a suggestive wink as speculation mounts regarding whether he will be fit enough in time for Egypt's crunch opening game against Uruguay on Friday.

Former Egypt global Mido said he expects Salah to play in the opening match in Yekaterinburg. "All I can say is that we hope he will play in this match", Lehita concluded.

Since, Salah has been working hard to alleviate the ligament damage sustained and get back to full fitness ahead of the tournament.

Uruguay are the favourites in Group A, which also includes hosts Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, who kick off the World Cup on June 14.

They say the Egypt star has no intention of heading to the Bernabeu.

Salah, who has declared himself fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer following his shoulder injury, has been vocal on his Reds future, with the attacker revealing he's happy at Anfield. The opening match will take place with Russian Federation on 19 June.
