Salah responds to Ramos' comments about Champions League injury

Roberto Martinez

Roberto Martinez took charge of Belgium in 2016

"Now I'm better. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it approaches", he said about his injury.

Recalling his exact thoughts at the time of the incident, Salah revealed: "When I fell to the ground, I had a mixture of physical pain and a lot of worry".

The attacker was also voted as the PFA player of the year as he helped Liverpool FC to finish in the top four and reach the Champions League final, where they were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid.

Belgium's captain and talisman, Eden Hazard, has likened Roberto Martínez's squad to England's famed "golden generation" of players but believes his team-mates can deliver in Russian Federation when the World Cup begins next week.

Arsenal interested in Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini
Manchester United have reportedly rejoined the race to sign Antoine Griezmann , who is also a summer target for Barcelona . Dermot Corrigan is a Madrid-based football writer who covers La Liga and the Spain national team for ESPN FC.

That drew a laugh from Salah who responded by saying: "My comment [to that] is that it's always good when the one who made you cry at first, then makes you laugh".

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is confident he will be fit enough to take part in Egypt's World Cup opener against Uruguay in Yekaterinburg next Friday, Spanish newspaper Marca reported on Saturday.

Ramos also said that Salah had told him he was "okay" in a text exchange shortly after the final, but the Premier League's Golden Boot victor for 2017-18 has denied these claims.

Hazard was on target in the first half at Stade Roi Baudouin after Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring against Egypt midweek before Marouane Fellaini completed the win in the second minute of stoppage time. "It was not normal because we won the African Cup seven times, and we were champions in 2006, 2008 and 2010", he added.

Paul Manafort faces new charges for alleged witness tampering
The conspiracy charges were added as courts six and seven to the indictment in federal district court in Washington, D.C. Mr Mueller has yet to assert that Mr Manafort's Ukraine and Russian connections resulted in any election-meddling.

Egypt should have taken the lead in the 23rd minute when Mohamed Abdelshafy swung in an enticing cross from the left, but Marwan Mohsen, unmarked in the middle, headed wide a chance Salah likely would have scored.

Nigeria, who have lost three of their last four games and drawn the other, kick off their World Cup campaign against Croatia on June 16, but they looked disinterested during the opening half as the Czechs dominated.

"We've got a great team and a great coach. I think I've improved with him". But for me it's not like that, we want to make history, achieve something different. "That is not going through my head".

"Could be, Spain or Portugal".
