'Drogba told me to break Premier League record' - Mohamed Salah

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

Salah jogged for about 30 minutes on Monday as his teammates trained on the same pitch in Grozny for the match in Ekaterinburg.

"He is doing (physiotherapy) sessions on his shoulder and working out in the gym", squad executive director Eihab Leheita said.

However Egypt team doctor Mohamed Abou El-Ela placed some caution on any hopes Salah will play a part against Uruguay in their Group A opener this Friday.

Russian Federation will host its first-ever FIFA World Cup from June 14 to July 15, with the games set to be held in a total of 11 cities, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Saransk, Rostov-on-Don and Yekaterinburg.

Salah capped off an incredible season for the Reds, where he managed 44 goals in all competitions.

"We will not pressure Mohamed".

Salah, in Russian Federation with Egypt, will hope to shake off his shoulder injury woe - picked in the Uefa Champions League final against Real Madrid - to feature in the Pharoah's opening 2018 Fifa World Cup fixture against Uruguay on Friday.

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.

Should he feature against Uruguay, current darling of Anfield Salah will go up against a former Kop hero in the form of Luis Suarez.
