Liverpool star Mohamed Salah turned up for Egypt training in Cairo on Saturday ahead of the Pharaohs' departure for the World Cup in Russian Federation but didn't take part, AFP witnessed.

Salah was involved in a tussle with Ramos in the Champions League final and the Real Madrid captain seemed to have locked arms with the Egyptian in a possible judo-hold.

Salah went on to confirm he is hoping to be fit to play in Egypt's first World Cup game against Uruguay next Friday, as he looked forward to the finals in Russian Federation.

"Now I'm feeling better", Salah told the Spanish daily. "We are good players, we all play in the big games in England, in Italy and in Spain, so we know what to do".

Illustrating just how much the tournament means to his country, the winger added: "For us to qualify for the World Cup is nearly like Spain winning the title".

The Liverpool superstar left the field in tears as his Champions League dream was crushed, simultaneously leaving his World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.

Salah missed out on Egypt's final World Cup warm-up match on Wednesday night.

Salah went on to describe his departure from the final as the worst moment of his career.

But now the player himself is confident he will make the opening game against Uruguay in Ekaterinburg on Friday, vowing to President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi he would be fit in time.

Ramos also downplayed the severity of Salah's injury, saying that he was once able to play through a similar problem.

JERUSALEM (AP) - The sports-crazed nation of Israel was in uproar Wednesday over Argentina's abrupt cancellation of a World Cup warmup match following pro-Palestinian protests, with some of the country's leaders accusing Lionel Messi and his teammates of caving to terrorism.

"He has great experience, he is a good coach and he helps us improve our performance", Salah said. But for me it's not like that, we want to make history, achieve something different.

They will then play against hosts Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia on June 19 and June 25. That's not going through my head.
