"It was (the worst moment of my career)", Salah began.

"I spoke with Salah after the Champions League final and sent him a message, as I said he is my friend and I want to see him in the World Cup".

Salah, affectionately called "the Egyptian king", has not only captured the heart of his homeland, but also has a huge fanbase internationally, which became apparent after his recent injury in champion league final match, as Salah became a top trend on Twitter.

"My comment is that it's always okay when the one who made you cry first, then makes you laugh", Salah responded in an interview with Marca.

He said: "Salah is a friend and I wish he will recover before the World Cup".

Following the session, Salah provided a promising update on his fitness, telling reporters: 'I'm excited.

The move didn't only highlight the Liverpool forward's absence for Egypt; the space Mohsen found also underscored how Belgium could miss center back Vincent Kompany if he is not fit to play in Russian Federation. It was a big blow for Egypt as well with the World Cup looming but Salah is on his recovery and should be available for the major tournament. "But we all have hopes for the World Cup".

The seven-time African champions play their opening Group A fixture on Friday, June 15, against Uruguay.

"I can not say what we're going to reach, but the players' ambitions are high and I hope we get a good result".

After being named in the final 23-man squad, Salah is hopeful of recovering in time to feature in Egypt's first World Cup fixture in 28-years when they meet Uruguay on June 15, before facing Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia in the remainder of their Group A games.

In the final seconds another Premier League player, Manchester United forward Marouane Fellaini, hit Belgium's third to cap what was a far more encouraging performance from Belgium. "Maybe like for Spain to win the World Cup".

"I think the first one I remember is the 2002 World Cup".

"In my head, the pressure is to achieve something different from what we have done before".

"I came for this historic moment, and to admire my country's team". Not just going there, three games and thank you very much. "That is not going through my head".
