Egypt manager Hector Cuper includes Mo Salah in 2018 World Cup squadby Jack Kitson / 04 June 2018, 12:16Tweet
Mo Salah is all set to feature at the 2018 World Cup after Hector Cuper included the Liverpool superstar in his 23-man squad for this summer’s showpiece spectacle.
Salah heartbreakingly suffered a shoulder injury during a tussle with Sergio Ramos in the Reds' Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, which subsequently put his World Cup in real doubt.
However, the 25-year-old has so far made strides in his recovery and has subsequently been included in Cuper’s 23-man squad - see full squad in tweet below - although he won’t meet up with his Egyptian teammates until 9th June.
On Sunday Salah posted an image to social media titled “good feelings…” which showed him exercising his shoulder in the gym - the post has since amassed a whopping 38,000 likes and 271,000 likes.
Salah’s last-gasp penalty in Egypt’s nerve-shredding 2-1 victory over Congo back in October saw the country book their place in the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.
The Pharaohs, who face Belgium in their final warm-up fixture on Wednesday, have since been placed in Group A alongside hosts Russia, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.
Cuper’s men will open up their campaign against Oscar Tabarez’s Uruguay on Friday 15th June.
