It was especially tough on Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy, who produced two good saves from Luis Suarez and one from Edinson Cavani before he was finally beaten.

They will get the chance to watch Salah in action next week after the Liverpool forward was declared fit to face Russian Federation in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old was a doubt leading up to the match with a shoulder injury he picked up in the Champions League final with Real Madrid last month.

Salah is crucial to Egypt's hopes of making it out of a weak-looking group also featuring hosts Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

Watch the highlight of the goal below.

Suarez was sent home and banned for four months following the incident, says the Daily Mail, and heads to Russian Federation knowing that this World Cup "could be his last chance to be remembered for the right reasons".

Mohamed Salah is in a high-profile race to be fit for Egypt's World Cup opener against Uruguay on Friday and even opponents are hoping the Liverpool ace could yet play a role in Russian Federation. Salah got injured during the finals of the Champions League while playing against Real Madrid after a tackle with Sergio Ramos in Kiev.

On a team that boasts one of the World Cup's most potent attacks, a defender lifted Uruguay to its first opening-match victory at the World Cup in 48 years.

Mr Trump also used language often employed by North Korea to describe those exercises, calling them "provocative" and "war games". At a rally in February, he said Democrats in Congress were treasonous because they did not clap at his State of the Union speech.

Salah can be seen going up the steps at the Ekaterinburg Arena to take his place on Egypt's bench. Whether the manager will risk him for their opener remains to be seen, but without him they will really struggle to make an impact here.

"We've tried to play in a very orderly fashion", Tabarez said.

"But we had matches in qualifying without Suarez and Cavani, and that's just how it is".

Cavani had five shots across the 90 minutes, but only hit the target on two occasions - the Paris Saint-Germain marksman seeing a late free-kick thud into the post.
