The mercurial forward posed for pictures this week in the official team kit, looking both in good shape and in high spirits.

Former Egypt global Mido said he expects Salah to play in the opening match in Yekaterinburg.

He may well not be fit to play from matchday one, but when he does feature, all eyes will be on Liverpool's Egyptian king.

Leheita said a physiotherapist from the medical staff of Salah's Liverpool club was at Grozny to help, and denied the English club was pressuring the Egyptians not to play Salah before he is fully fit.

"We have been following the case since his injury in the final of Champions League".

Since, Salah has been working hard to alleviate the ligament damage sustained and get back to full fitness ahead of the tournament.

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.
