Mohamed Salah joins Egypt for World Cup flight, does not train with team

Mohamed Salah returned to Egypt training ahead of their opening World Cup match against Uruguay.
With Mo Salah still recovering, Ed Dove discusses what fans can expect from Egypt at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Mohamed Salah appeared with the rest of Egypt squad at a final training session in Cairo before they flew to Russia on Sunday for the country's first World Cup appearance in 28 years.

The 25-year-old has not played since injuring his left shoulder in Liverpool's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last month and is considered a doubt for Egypt's Group A opener against Uruguay on Friday.

Salah, who scored 44 goals in all competitions this season, spent around 45 minutes walking around Cairo's national stadium in front of around 2,000 supporters but did not train with the rest of the squad.

He posed for selfies and grinned alongside the national team's mascot, a green "Nile crocodile," and was pictured on board the plane that took the squad to their base in Grozny.
