Luis Suarez set for first World Cup game since biting Giorgio Chiellini

Salah availability for Uruguay clash ´uncertain´ despite joining Egypt training

Salah availability for Uruguay clash ´uncertain´ despite joining Egypt training

The Egyptian football federation said after Salah's injury that he could be out for three weeks, meaning he would miss their opening Group A match but could then be available against Russia on June 19 and Saudi Arabia on June 25.

Cuper went further by predicting on the eve of the match that Salah could emerge as one of the tournament's most prolific goalscorers.

Luis Suarez will be chasing redemption on Friday when Uruguay face Egypt in his first World Cup appearance since being thrown out of the tournament in 2014 for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Salah's omission from the first XI is something of a surprise given Cuper's comments on Thursday, when he said: "We still have to see how training goes today, but I can nearly assure you 100 percent that he'll play, we are all very optimistic that he will be on the pitch".

Although his shoulders will be overburdened with expectations at the World Cup, former Egypt and United States national coach Bob Bradley feels he will be ready for the massive challenges in Russian Federation.

The 62-year-old Argentine added: "Salah is very good and he's recovered very quickly".

The Liverpool star‚ who has been struggling with a shoulder injury he sustained in a tussle with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos during last month's Champions League final‚ trained with the rest of the Egypt squad for the first time on Wednesday. We are not going to change our system because of him.

"We are watching the situation closely with the doctor".

Fans screamed in delight when Salah's name was read out over the loudspeaker, while those able to get to the pitch took selfies with their hero.

"Why not? He could become the top goalscorer here and one of the greatest players". That match comes against Uruguay in the group stage at 8 a.m. Friday at Ekaterinburg Arena in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

"I don't like to practice at the World Cup with things we haven't done before. Sometimes, you have to flawless and fine-tune the things that you do well".

Uruguay worldwide Fernando Muslera says he wants to play with the best and against the best.
