Mo Salah provides boost for Egyptians ahead of their World Cup opener

The episode sparked reactions on social media given the allegations of Kadryov's human rights violations.

Despite the optics, however, Leheita told the Associated Press he had "no regrets whatsoever" about the choice of Grozny as the all-Muslim squad's base and refused to answer questions about the encounter between the two men, telling AP: "Ask FIFA for a comment".

Mohamed Salah looks to be on course to make his return for Egypt in time for the beginning of the World Cup.

"From what I've been told, this is unlikely to get done before the World Cup, if at all".

Egypt is playing in its first World Cup since 1990.

"He is doing [physiotherapy] sessions on his shoulder and working out in the gym", Leheita said.

Salah, who scored 32 goals in 36 appearances for Liverpool and led his team to the Champions League final this season, is considered the main rival for Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the contest for the title of world's best footballer.

"Salah is training individually under the supervision of the team's medical staff while the Pharaohs are holding their second training session in Grozny", reads a statement from the Egyptian Football Association's official website. So I thought to myself, I have quite a few games to play before the end of the season, I can break the all-time record!

'We will not pressure Mohamed.
