Mohamed Salah sported a smile in training.

Egypt superstar Mohamed Salah is “almost 100 per cent” certain to play in Friday’s World Cup opener against Uruguay, says boss Hector Cuper.

Salah, 25, has been in a race against time to be passed fit after he injured shoulder ligaments in a controversial early collision with Sergio Ramos during Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid on May 26.

The forward missed all three of Egypt’s warm-up friendlies.

“I can almost assure you 100 per cent he will play, save unforeseen circumstances at the very last minute,” said Cuper.

The match at Ekaterinburg Arena in Group A will be Egypt’s first at a World Cup finals in 28 years.
