Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is hopeful of being fit in time to play in Egypt's opening game of the World Cup against Uruguay.
The scorer of the penalty kick which sent The Pharaohs to Russia also played down the animosity that has been evident since his tangle with Sergio Ramos in last month's Champions League final, which caused his injury the first place.
"I don't know. Maybe the fall with Ramos was a regular play. Now I'm better. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it approaches," Salah is quoted as saying by the Spanish newspaper Marca.
The Liverpool star damaged ligaments in his shoulder during the first half of the Champions League final 3-1 defeat by Real Madrid on 26 May.
The Egyptian Football Association predicted at the time that Salah would recover within three weeks and would be fit for the World Cup, if not the opening match against Uruguay.
