Mohamed Salah: We want to make history, achieve something different

  • Belgium Egypt

However, Salah told Marca's Hugo Cerezo (h/t ESPN.com" Sam Marsden) the comments were "funny" and added: "He sent me a message, but I never told him it was "fine'".

Salah was involved in a tussle with Ramos in the Champions League final and the Real Madrid captain seemed to have locked arms with the Egyptian in a possible judo-hold.

Egypt are optimistic Salah will be fit for their World Cup Group A campaign against Uruguay (June 14), hosts Russia (June 19) and Saudi Arabia (June 25).

Salah has been working constantly on his shoulder since the injury and hopes "to play the first game against Uruguay", but it will depend on how much progress he makes between now and then. "If we want to go far in the World Cup, we'll have to be as solid as we were tonight and keep our energy".


Romelu Lukaku, favoured as starting striker over Michy Batshuayi, thumped home from close range in the 27th minute, after Egypt's 45-year-old keeper Essam El-Hadary spilled from Eden Hazard.

The striker, 25, scored 44 goals for Liverpool last season, which helped him be named Premier League Player of the Season and also scored the penalty that confirmed his country's place in Russian Federation.

Salah's swift return to fitness - he picked up the injury on May 26 - is a welcome boost for Egypt boss Hector Cuper who accepted his side lack's something special when Salah is missing. Maybe like for Spain to win the World Cup. Defender Tomas Kalas, fresh from helping Fulham win promotion to the English Premier League, scored the only goal of the game in the first half in Schwechat, just outside Vienna. "So any team is going to miss the goal scoring threat of Mo Salah. But what I like is that when we make mistakes we've got the togetherness to try to overcome them and I don't think we had that before and that's very pleasing".

Worryingly for the Panamanians, who face Belgium, England and Tunisia in Group G in their first World Cup finals appearance, they struggled to deal with Norway's physical power, but they did create decent chances in the second half. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
