Fit-again Mo Salah travels with Egypt for World Cup

Mo Salah was given a hero’s send-off by jubilant Egypt fans as he trained for the first time since his injury – and then boarded the plane to Russia.

The Liverpool striker was pictured alongside his Egypt team-mates in the plane as they set off for Grozny, where the Pharaohs will be based throughout the tournament.

Salah was one of the first players off the plan in Grozny airport as the Egypt squad landed in Russia.

He earlier trained alongside the rest of manager Hector Cuper’s squad in front of devoted fans at Cairo’s national stadium.

The 25-year-old posed for selfies and grinned alongside the national team’s mascot.

Salah then proved his fitness for the World Cup as boarded the flight to Russia, for Egypt’s first World Cup appearance in 28 years.

His World Cup chances were left in doubt when he left last month’s Champions League final in tears after sustaining a suspected dislocated shoulder injury when he was grabbed by Sergio Ramos.

Last week Salah said Ramos may have deliberately injured him during the Champions League final.

Spain skipper Ramos has been accused of making sure the Liverpool ace was crocked, which he denies.

And asked if he believed the claims, Salah told Marca: “I do not know. Maybe.

“When I fell to the ground, I had a mixture of physical pain and a lot of worry, also anger and sadness for not being able to continue playing the Champions League final.

“Moments later, I also thought about the possibility of losing the World Cup and that was a devastating thought.
