Salah'Almost 100% Certain To Play In Egypt Opener Coach Says Salah Out Of Egypt Starting XI Against Uruguay

Egypt coach Hector Cuper has left talismanic attacker Mohamed Salah on the bench for their World Cup opening match against Uruguay at the Ekaterinburg Arena on Friday.

"He's certainly important, nobody can deny that, but you need a good team too - and we are a good team", said Cuper.

Mohamed Salah had been racing against time to be ready for World Cup.

"I can nearly assure you 100 percent he'll play", Cuper said in the pre-match press conference.

The Liverpool forward damaged his shoulder ligaments in the Champions League final last month following a challenge from Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and was a doubt for the Pharaoh's first match having failed to play in any of the warm-up games.

He had a hand in all seven of Egypt's goals in qualifying, scoring five and creating two - and football followers are expecting him to add to his global tally of 33 in 57 games.

Cuper also entertained a question from a reporter about Salah's prospects of emerging as the top scorer at the tournament.

The Arab world is represented by four nations, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt - and there is huge optimism among football fans in the Middle East and North Africa that one of them could go all the way.

"I would be happy if Salah could play".

"We'll see great players here and he can be the greatest player [of all] at this World Cup".

The shock news comes after it was reported that he had been passed as fit to play in Egypt's opening group game.
