However, Salah did some light running in Grozny on Monday, monitored by medical staff, as the other Egypt players took part in a group warm-up. "God willing I'm well-prepared and things are going well and my morale is high", Salah told AFP.

"I can not say what we're going to reach, but the players' ambitions are high and I hope we get a good result".

In a statement Sunday the Egyptian Competition Authority said it had made a decision to "enforce its authority" and "compel Federation Internationale de Football Association to give the right for direct ground transmission to the (Egyptian) National Media Authority" for 22 World Cup matches. "All I can say is that we hope he will play in this match", Lehita concluded.

"We can't push him to play the opening match because we care about his future". He may yet be fit to face Russian Federation on June 19 in Saint Petersburg, though, and then Saudi Arabia on June 25 in Volgograd according to AFP.

Fans of the Pharaohs will be hoping their star man will be able to feature in all or most of Egypt's group games, as the man with 33 goals in 57 games for Egypt is by far their biggest threat and will provide the best chance to progress to the knockout phases.

Salah, who has declared himself fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer following his shoulder injury, has been vocal on his Reds future, with the attacker revealing he's happy at Anfield.

Egypt also face Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation in Group A.
