Mohamed Salah hopeful of making World Cup opener for Egypt

Romelu Lukaku's reaction is priceless when asked if Man Utd are better than Belgium

"Egypt are a compact team and they are very organised".

Sticking with a three-man defence, England's group-stage opponents Belgium showed more cutting edge up front than in their goalless outing at home on Saturday against Portugal.

Liverpool striker Salah suffered a shoulder injury when he tangled with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos in the Champions League final at the end of May.

"Now I'm better. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it approaches", said Salah, who arrived in Cairo on Thursday night to join his teammates, who will head to Russian Federation on Sunday. But even a characteristically strong defensive display by the Pharaohs wasn't enough to contain Hazard, who played only the opening half, and the visitors at times appeared well below par.

Hazard scored their second goal while Manchester United pair Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini also struck. Seven minutes before the interval Yannick Carrasco turned provider for Hazard to hit his 22nd goal for Belgium in 80 appearances. "Maybe like for Spain to win the World Cup", he added.




He will be regarded as key to any hopes Egypt have of springing a surprise at the World Cup in Russian Federation but, after the Champions League final injury he described as a career-low point, Salah remains uncertain if he will play in the opening Group A clash with Uruguay.

Belgium eased past Egypt 3-0 in Brussels to extend the north African side's winless streak since qualifying for the tournament in Russian Federation starting next week.

At the Ulleval stadium in Oslo, Norway, who are not qualified for the World Cup, took a fourth-minute through Joshua King.

Salah is confident he will be fit enough to take part in Egypt's World Cup opener against Uruguay.

After an incredible season that saw Salah win the PFA and FWA Player of the Year awards, LFC's Player of the Year award and the Premier League golden boot, one could only feel heartbroken for Salah as he was prematurely robbed of the chance to help his team to Champions League glory. Brazil won it. 2-1? They will be based in Yessentuki, by the Caucasus Mountains in southern Russian Federation.
