Agony: Salah

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is “confident” of playing in the World Cup with Egypt after copping a shoulder injury in the Champions League final on Saturday night, which his side lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.

Salah was injured in a challenge with Real Madrid hard man Sergio Ramos and the 25-year-old, who scored 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this just ended season, had to be substituted in the first half.

The Egypt star walked off in tears of anguish, fuelling speculation he could be the World Cup in Russia, which kicks off in about three weeks.

“It was a very tough night, but I’m a fighter,” Salah tweeted on Sunday evening. “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 their first game of the World Cup in Russia on 15 June against Uruguay in Yekaterinburg.

Liverpool managerJurgen Klopp had described the injury as “really serious” on Saturday night but the Egyptian FA tweeted that Salah’s X-ray showed he had a “sprain in the shoulder ligaments” and that it was “optimistic” he would be fit for Russia.

Meanwhile, Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) have named, Mohammed Salah, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric in the UEFA Champions League squad of the season.

UEFA Champions League champions Real Madrid have seven players in the 18-man squad while beaten finalists Liverpool have three players while AS Roma and Bayern Munich have two players each named in the squad, which was revealed on UEFA social media outlets on Sunday.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas and AS Roma’s Allison are the two goalkeepers listed in the squad.

In defence, Juventus Giorgio Chiellini is joined by the trio of Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Marcelo. Virgil Van Dijk of Liverpool and Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich are the other defenders listed in the team.

In midfield, Real Madrid’s trio of Modric, Casimerio and Toni Kroos are joined by Kevin de Bruyne of Manchester City and James Rodriguez from Bayern Munich.

Messi, Ronaldo, Salah, Roberto Firimino and Edin Dzeko from AS Roma complete the list of players in attack.
