Egypt coach ready to unleash Salah on Russian Federation

Salah and Elmohamady attend a training session

Mohamed Salah showed signs of discomfort with his injured left shoulder while taking part in Egypt's final training session before the team's World Cup match against Russian Federation on Tuesday. A win against Hector Cuper's Egypt, who will have the services of a fit-again Mohamed Salah, would confirm their place in the next round.

Salah hadn't played since suffering a shoulder injury during the Champions League final over three weeks ago, so it's no surprise he was a step below the form that landed him the Premier League Player of the Year award this past season.

However, there is a caveat: Mo Salah will be subject to a late fitness test ahead of the game, and should he not pass that, he will not play any part.

Egypt's Mohamed Salah waves for fans during a World Cup training session at Cairo global stadium on 9 June 2018.

"Whether Mo Salah plays or not, it's going to be a hard game for us anyway".

Swapping out dynamic but underperforming striker Fedor Smolov for towering Artem Dzyuba, Russia looked to exploit Egypt's vulnerability to crosses, evident in its opening-game defeat against Uruguay.

"We didn't qualify for the World Cup after such a long time away to play three games and go home", Elneny told Federation Internationale de Football Association website. He is a team player and that at least for me is extremely important now. Like Messi, who was not born the last time the Albiceleste lifted the World Cup trophy in Brazil, the window may be closing for Cristiano Ronaldo, who will lead the Portugal - the 2016 Euro winners - to another championship title. Ignashevic and Kutepov did not put a foot wrong against the Saudis but they are both not the quickest of defenders and will need to be wary of the Egyptian threat on the counter.

Aleksandr Golovin scored his first World Cup goal and registered two assists on his debut in the competition.

Mohamed Salah was Egypt's top scorer in qualifying with five goals in five appearances.
