Mohamed Salah gives Egypt hope for World Cup with news over injury

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will be fit to play some part in Egypt’s World Cup campaign, his country says.

Salah injured his shoulder during Liverpool’s Champions League final loss to Real Madrid on Saturday, prompting concerns he might miss the tournament. But Egypt’s national team doctor has met Salah, and the country’s football association said the striker’s absence “will not exceed” three weeks.

Egypt’s opening World Cup fixture is against Uruguay on 15 June. Salah, 25, met the national team doctor and Egyptian FA president Hany Abu Rida in Spain on Wednesday.
