Egypt's Mohamed Salah dribbles for first time since injuring shoulder

Stone me! Stunning Salah & Messi mosaics appear in Kazan ahead of World Cup

Doubts persist over Salah's fitness but the Egyptian star said from the team's base in Grozny on Monday that he was "well-prepared" for the tournament.

GROZNY: Mohamed Salah, a star attraction ahead of football´s 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, has made headlines for a smiling photo with Ramzan Kadyrov, strongman of Chechnya where his Egypt team have set up camp.

"Maybe he could start on the bench, but a final decision has not been made yet", the Pharaohs' team doctor, Mohamed Abouelela, told The Associated Press on Monday.

"Salah is getting better".

For the team itself, the Salah-Kadyrov handshake was far less important than whether their star will recover from a shoulder injury to feature in Egypt´s opening match against Uruguay on Friday in Ekaterinburg. "We hope he will be with us for the Uruguay match".

"He still feels pain... this type of injury needs a recovery period of three weeks before going back to the field", said Abou al-Ela.

The Egypt worldwide enjoyed a stellar debut season at Anfield, scoring 44 goals and registering 14 assists in 53 appearances in all competitions.

Egypt will take to their first World Cup finals since 1990, after Salah himself fired them to Russian Federation with a last-minute penalty against Congo in a play-off fixture.

Egypt has been placed in Group A of the World Cup, where it is expected to clash against hosts Russia, Uruguay and and Saudi Arabia.

"From what I've been told, this is unlikely to get done before the World Cup, if at all".
