Salah joins Egypt train­ing

The Hitavada - - WORLD CUP -

MO­HAMED Salah gave Egypt’s World Cup hopes a huge boost Wed­nes­day when he joined a squad train­ing ses­sion at their Grozny base.

The Pharaohs’ su­per­star has been side­lined since suf­fer­ing a shoul­der in­jury in Liver­pool’s Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal loss to Real Madrid on May 26.

How­ever, an AFP reporter saw the for­ward take part in his first train­ing ses­sion since the in­jury, go­ing through a range of warmup ex­er­cises with his team-mates.

Team di­rec­tor Ihab Lahita was cagey about Salah’s progress, say­ing there was no guar­an­tee he would play in Egypt’s Group A opener against Uruguay on Fri­day. “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,” he told re­porters.
