Cheryshev's son, former Real Madrid midfielder Denis, will be hoping to line up against Salah in midweek after stepping off the bench to bag a brace in a 5-0 mauling of Saudi Arabia.

That result, coupled with Egypt's defeat, means that they cannot afford another defeat on the biggest stage, and they will be hopeful that Salah can replicate his 2017-18 club form against Russian Federation.

"It is up to each one, " he said.

"In the first match, everyone saw how much the players cared", he said.

A close ally of President Vladimir Putin, Mutko oversaw preparations for the tournament at a cost of more than $13 billion.

"Yesterday we were quite certain that he would play".

Mutko still serves on the federation's executive committee but was also stripped of his sports brief in a government reshuffle last month.

Mohamed Salah needed the help of three teammates to put on a training top.

Egypt were blunt without their star man, falling to a disappointing 1-0 defeat, with Jose Gimenez's injury-time header gifting victory to a below-par Uruguay side.

'Liverpool uses Salah properly, here, in the Egyptian national team, things will be different'.

Salah has been declared 100 percent fit by Egypt's team doctor and his agent, leaving little doubt he will be thrown back into action in the Pharaohs' hour of need.

Elshenawy was not one of the better-known players entering the World Cup, and, in fact, there was some question before the game whether he or Egypt's other goalkeeper, Essam El-Hadary, would be in the lineup against Uruguay.

However, the 29-year-old declined the official trophy that went with the designation because its sponsorship by Budweiser conflicted with his Muslim beliefs.
