Salah return stands in Russia's road to last 16

Egypt faces host Russian Federation in St. Petersburg on Tuesday, and then takes on Saudi Arabia on June 25.

"Russia's game is fateful and hard because of our defeat against Uruguay", said Leheta. But honestly he wouldn't be doing something haram if he just accepted the award, right?" while another defended the Muslim's goalkeeper choice, explaining: "I mean why does this bother you lot so much?

Mutko still serves on the federation's executive committee but was also stripped of his sports brief in a government reshuffle last month.

While even in hindsight it seems the best decision for Egypt's most influential player, Salah could have made the world of difference with his pace, ability on the ball and eye for goal.

The uninspired performance by Stanislav Cherchesov's side sparked concern they could crash out of the World Cup group stage without a win, as they did at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

AFP reporters at Egypt's training camp in Grozny saw Salah on Saturday requiring the help of teammates to pull on a top over the shoulder he injured in Liverpool's Champions League loss to Real Madrid.

Egypt Coach Héctor Cúper not wanting to take further risk with star man Mohammed Salah chose to keep him on the bench.

Salah watched from the bench as Egypt succumbed to an 89th minute header by defender Jose Gimenez in a 1-0 loss to Uruguay on Friday.

Salah has been declared 100 percent fit by Egypt's team doctor and his agent, leaving little doubt he will be thrown back into action in the Pharaohs' hour of need. They can play well in defense.

However, the 29-year-old declined the official trophy that went with the designation because its sponsorship by Budweiser conflicted with his Muslim beliefs.
