Egypt’s Mohamed Salah gave his countrymen a World Cup boost on Wednesday as he joined a squad training session at their Grozny base.
The Pharoahs’ superstar had been an injury doubt after suffering a shoulder injury in Liverpool’s Champions League final loss to Real Madrid on May 26.
But an AFP reporter saw the forward take part in the session, going through a range of warm-up exercises with his teammates, who face Uruguay in their Group A opener Friday.
