Mohamed Salah takes part in full Egypt training ahead of World Cup

Mohamed Salah takes part in full Egypt training ahead of World Cup

Mohamed Salah joined the rest of Egypt's World Cup squad for warmup drills Tuesday and dribbled for the first time since injuring his left shoulder in last month's Champions League final.

Salah, in Russian Federation with Egypt, will hope to shake off his shoulder injury woe - picked in the Uefa Champions League final against Real Madrid - to feature in the Pharoah's opening 2018 Fifa World Cup fixture against Uruguay on Friday.

Footage by RT's Ruplty video agency showed Salah training individually with a physical therapist at the stadium in the Chechen capital, Grozny, which the Egyptian national team chose to base its camp during the tournament.

However, the 25-year-old was spotted taking part in the session - going through a range of warm-up exercises with his team-mates.

Fans of the Pharaohs will be hoping their star man will be able to feature in all or most of Egypt's group games, as the man with 33 goals in 57 games for Egypt is by far their biggest threat and will provide the best chance to progress to the knockout phases.

Kadyrov, supported by Russia's President Vladimir Putin, rules Chechnya with an iron fist, drawing constant condemnation from human rights groups.

Egypt also face Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation in Group A.

Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah has revealed what Chelsea legend, Didier Droga told him about breaking his Premier League goal record.
