Salah Confident About World Cup Participation As Sports Minister Rules Him Out For Two Weeks

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is confident that he will be fit for this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia “despite the odds.”

The former Fiorentina and Chelsea star suffered a shoulder injury in Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final loss to Real Madrid in Kiev thus throwing his native Egypt into a mini crisis but he has moved to quickly allay fears about his fitness via social media.

Salah disclosed that “it was a very tough night” but he’s optimistic that he would be able to feature for Egypt in their first World Cup appearance in 28 years (1990).

The Egyptian Minister for Sports, Khaled Abd Elaziz, had earlier pronounced a similar statement that Salah will be fit for Russia 2018 despite the injury he sustained in a tangle with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

Abd Elaziz revealed this via a Facebook post picked up by Egyptian media outlet Kingfut and also added that he suffered ligament damage to his shoulder and will be out of action for just two weeks.[tps_header][/tps_header]
