Egyptian Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is “confident” of playing at the World Cup after suffering a shoulder injury in their Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid.
Salah was involved in a tussle with Sergio Ramos during the cause of play in the first half in which he fell with his shoulder and thereafter left the pitch in tears.
In a message on his twitter page, he said, “Your love and support will give me the strength I need,”
Meanwhile, the Egyptian FA have tweeted an X-ray showing that Salah had a “sprain in the shoulder ligaments” and that it was “optimistic” he would be fit for Russia.
Egypt will face Uruguay on the 15th of June in their first game at the World Cup in Yekaterinburg.
