While Egypt are strengthened immeasurably by Salah's return, Russian Federation will be weakened by the absence of creative midfielder Alan Dzagoev, who was injured during their opening match.

The second followed 12 minutes later when Alexandr Samedov found the overlapping run of full-back Mario Fernandes, who reached to the byline and pulled the ball back to Cheryshev eight yards to strike his third goal of the tournament.

Russian Federation come into this match on the back of a 5-0 win over Cup minnows Saudi Arabia in the World Cup opener.

Salah was blocked by Mario Fernandes as Egypt looked to respond, only for Russian Federation to go further ahead in the 62nd minute. "Ready for tomorrow", "100 million strong", read the caption for the video he posted yesterday, which shows Salah talking to the camera saying, "You might think that all this pressure on me to score could be a pressure". Visit SportsLine now to see the strong Russia-Egypt money line pick, all from a European football expert whose powerful model is up 1,800 percent in less than three years.

Oddschecker also indicates Salah remains one of the favourites to score his country's first goal in the competition, being given 4/1 chances of scoring a goal against the hosts. "In the previous match we thought he was fit but we have a final fitness test". And, the game against Egypt won't be easy for the hosts as the Egyptian King will be making an appearance for his team after missing team's first game.

A poor punch by goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shenawy saw Roman Zobnin try his luck from distance, with captain Ahmed Fathy inadvertently turning the ball into his own goal while attempting to clear.

Egypt will most likely go with a 4-2-3-1 formation with Sam Morsy and Mohamed Elneny playing in central midfield. Abdallah El Said will start as a no.10 while Marwan Mohsen will lead the attack up front.
