The Egyptian FA have released a positive statement on Mohamed Salah’s infamous shoulder injury, saying that the Liverpool winger should be fit to play at least some part in the upcoming World Cup.

Crocked by that challenge from Sergio Ramos in the Champions League final at the weekend, Salah’s participation in Russia was in serious doubt.

However, after the 25-year-old met with the national team doctor in Spain, the Egyptian FA posted on their Facebook page that their star-man should be fit within three weeks at the most…

The delegation of the national team was briefed on the recovery programme for the player, who is walking well and aims to join the squad in the World Cup, as well as the determination of the great player to catch up with his team-mates.

For his part, (team doctor) Mohamed Abou El-Ela said that the period of absence of Salah due to injury will not exceed three weeks.

That’s good news then, with Egypt’s group games coming on June 15th (v Uruguay), June 19th (v Russia) and June 25th (Saudi Arabia).

Fingers crossed he’ll make at least a couple of those games.

It would be an utter shame to see such a fantastic player, in the form of his life, miss out this summer.
