Mohamed Salah feels confident he will overcome his shoulder injury in time to play for Egypt at the World Cup.



The Liverpool striker was forced out of the Champions League final after just 30 minutes following a tangle with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

The Egyptian FA tweeted that a scan on their star player revealed a "sprain in the shoulder ligaments".

But an Instagram post from Salah on Sunday revealed that he was planning on taking part in Russia.

He wrote: "It was a very tough night, but I'm a fighter.

"Despite the odds, I'm confident that I'll be in Russia to make you all proud. Your love and support will give me the strength I need."

Egypt play Uruguay on 15 June before facing Russia four days later and Saudi Arabia on the 25th of June.
