Mohamed Salah has been named in Egypt’s World Cup squad, despite a shoulder injury which will keep him out for three weeks.
Under such a timeframe, Salah would likely miss Egypt’s first two games in Group A, but could return for the stage’s finale against Saudi Arabia on June 25.
Egypt have been working together with Liverpool on Salah’s fitness since the forward suffered the injury in the first half of the Reds’ defeat to Real Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League final.
A four-week recovery would still leave Salah ready for the knockout stage if Egypt get there.
Salah had travelled to Valencia, Spain, to undergo treatment but has been seen without a sling as he undergoes treatment, footage recorded by El Chiringuito TV shows.
