Mohamed Salah's fitness not exclusively at fault for Egypt's woes - Hector Cuper

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

Egypt has been eliminated from the 2018 World Cup following their 3-1 defeat to hosts Russian Federation on Tuesday night.

The win gives Russian Federation two wins from two in Group A, after their opening game 5-0 demolition of Saudi Arabia last week.

Wonder kid Cherrychev added a second for the host on the night, his personal third in the tournament before Dzyuba ended any Egyptian hope of a revival.

It was Cheryshev's third goal of the World Cup, putting him tied with Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the scoring chart.

Egypt and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah played his first game since his shoulder injury during the UEFA Champions League final.

However, Russia had enjoyed a far more positive start in thrashing Saudi Arabia 5-0 to snap a seven-game run without a win heading into the tournament and their greater confidence showed early on.

Liverpool's non-internationals will report back to Melwood on July 2, with friendlies scheduled against Chester, Tranmere Rovers, Bury and Blackburn Rovers before the tour of the United States.

It will be scant consolation for the Egyptian King, however, as his talents are deserving of much more on the global stage.

"I don't think it was a lack of concentration". "But obviously we couldn't do that, as the priority was to get him fit again".

In fairness, we are nowhere near the levels of Jabulani hysteria - Adidas' infamous giant leap for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa that Gianluigi Buffon described as "horrible" amid a wave of criticism that included condemnation from NASA.

"Salah is fit. In the previous match against Uruguay we thought he was fit also but we always draw up a last physical test", the former Valencia boss explained.

In response to the controversy, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) stated on their official Facebook page late on Monday that "the football team does not interact with the Egyptian celebrities staying at the same hotel, and they use different entrances".

"Perhaps we weren't decisive enough but we have to recognise the great effort they have done after 28 years of Egypt not taking part in a World Cup".

Egypt is hoping for an improbable win for Saudi Arabia.
