Mohamed Salah’s shoulder injury
One of the big issues heading into the 2018 World Cup is the fitness of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.
Salah was last seen on the pitch in the Champions League final.
After a challenge with Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos, Salah left the final in tears with a shoulder injury.
Egyptians are now busy refreshing their news feeds for updates on Salah’s fitness.
Will the Liverpool star be available for Egypt’s World Cup opener against Uruguay on Friday?
Egypt are also pooled with Russia and Saudi Arabia this summer.
Fans reveals Liverpool’s Salah is still hurt
Egypt have already landed in Russia for the World Cup.
On Sunday night the Egyptians trained in Grozny, and that revealed that Salah is still hurt.
As Salah got off the Egyptian bus, one fan tried to get a photo with the Liverpool star.
The fan touched Salah around his neck, and Salah instantly winced. The fan was subsequently pushed away from Salah, revealing that he’s still not 100%.
