Salah sustained the injury in clash with Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos in the Champions League final in May 26th, casting a doubt over his hopes of leading the Egyptian challenge at Russian Federation 2018.

Egypt have played down the claims made by forward Mohamed Salah that he will be ready for their first match at the World Cup against Uruguay.

Former Liverpool defender and current BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson expects Uruguay to beat Egypt by just a one-goal margin on Friday.

Following an exhausting 16-hour flight, the team faces another four hours on a plane for the game against Egypt, which will be played in Ekaterinburg.

The Reds seem to be keen on signing a goalkeeper following Loris Karius' nightmare Champions League final last month.

Egypt, who are in Group A along with hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay, faced the South Americans Uruguay on Friday, June 15, before taking on Russia on June 19 and Saudi Arabia on June 25. "We are watching the situation closely with the doctor", he added. "He trains indoors as well in the gym, and today he trained on the pitch", he continued.

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

Drogba, who played for Chelsea between 2004 and 2012, was the previous record holder on 29 goals but Salah found the net 32 times during last season's league campaign to smash the Ivorian's record. "All I can say is that we hope he will play in this match".
