Egypt’s Mohamed Salah fit and ready to fire against Uruguay

Egypt and Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah will start on the substitutes bench for Egypt in their World Cup 2018 opener against Uruguay in Ekaterinburg on Friday.

Following their match against Uruguay, Egypt face hosts Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia in Group A.

The 25-year-old went to Valencia, Spain, for treatment since the injury and Egyptian manager Hector Cuper has said that he has '100%' confidence that his talisman will be fit for his side's opening game in Yekaterinburg.

It was feared that Salah could miss the entire tournament after he suffered a shoulder injury during last month's Champions League final in Kiev following a foul from Spanish defender Sergio Ramos.

"In 2016, SBS negotiated a deal with Optus that has allowed us to bring more of the best global football to Australians free-to-air than there has been in over a decade by securing free-to-air rights for the Premier League through sharing the rights to the FIFA 2018 World Cup", an SBS spokesman today told

"I can nearly assure you 100 percent that he will play, save unforeseen circumstances at the very last minute".

Egypt are back in the World Cup finals for the first time since 1990 and their progress to the last 16 could hinge on Salah enjoying the form that saw him voted England's Player of the Year by his fellow professionals. I know Salah very well, he's not fearful.
