Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah has been named in Egypt’s World Cup squad despite being injured in the Champions League final with Real Madrid.
Salah, will not be with his team-mates until 9 June as he recovers from a shoulder injury, his national team said.
Egypt’s opening World Cup fixture is against Uruguay on 15 June.
They will face the hosts on 19 June and conclude their campaign in group A against Saudi Arabia on 25 June.
He struck a 95th-minute penalty in the final qualification game to send Egypt to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.
During the Champions League final, Salah was forced out of the pitch due to a shoulder injury midway through the first half after landing heavily on his shoulder following a challenge by Sergio Ramos.
The national team doctor said he met Salah soon after the final and subsequently confirmed his absence “would not exceed” three weeks.
Salah will miss Wednesday’s final friendly with Belgium, but will meet up with his team-mates once they return to Cairo for an open training session on 9 June.
