Will he or won’t he? All eyes on Egypt’s Salah
MOHAMED Salah is in a highprofile race to be fit for Egypt’s World Cup opener against Uruguay on Friday. The striker and Egyptian superstar, who is nursing an injured shoulder, is crucial to the north African side’s hopes of making it out of a weak-looking Group A also featuring the hosts and Saudi Arabia. After doing a range of warm-up exercises with his teammates on Wednesday, Egyptian team officials gave little away. “There’s a good degree of progress but no definitive decision on whether he takes part, as we are following his case day by day,” team director Ihab Lahita said.
