Mohamed Salah feeling good ahead of World Cup with Egypt

Mohamed Salah is continuing to make encouraging progress in his battle to be fit for Egypt’s World Cup campaign.

The Liverpool forward suffered a shoulder injury in last month’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid after tangling with Sergio Ramos.

Salah arrived in Valencia on Tuesday for treatment on his damaged shoulder and has been assessed by Egyptian national team doctors.

In his latest update on social media on Sunday, Salah posted a tweet of what appeared to be a strength and conditioning session, with the caption: “Good feelings…”

A post on the federation’s Facebook page read: “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.”

Egypt’s opening World Cup match takes place on June 15 against Uruguay, with their second against hosts Russia coming four days later.
