Ramos escaped punitive action for the incident, but hundreds of thousands of people signed a petition calling for discipline against the Andalusian.

He speaks about Egypt's ambitions, his personal objective, Spain's way of playing. "I think we are quite the same - it is 50-50 - England have a lot of good players, we also have good players so we will see".

After saying his recovery is going well, Salah remembers "when I hit the floor, there was a mix of physical pain and 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. "I began to think that I would miss the World Cup, it was devastating", he said.

"[Laughs] My comment is that it's always okay when the one who made you cry first, then makes you laugh".

Egypt begin their World Cup campaign against Uruguay in Russian Federation next Friday.

The China-led grouping includes India, Russia, Pakistan and several Central Asian countries, as well as Iran as an observer state. Armoured vans lined the streets of the coastal city of Qingdao as world leaders arrived Friday for the 18th annual summit.

Salah added: "He sent me a message, but I never told him it was "okay".

Last October, the Liverpool winger scored twice in the win over Congo that qualified Egypt, nicknamed the Pharaohs, for their third finals - and their first since 1990.

Salah has been vocal on his Anfield future in recent weeks, with the Egypt star claiming he's happy under Klopp at Liverpool.

"We had not achieved it for a long time and it was something very special". "It became common to win the [African Nations Cup], but not to qualify for the World Cup". We play differently with Hector Cuper than with our previous coach [Shawky Gharib].

Belgium have one friendly with Costa Rica remaining on Monday, before their Group G opener against Panama on 18 June. "I promise to do my best for our people", he added.

After days of rumors and speculations it has been confirmed that the Egyptian King will be heading with the rest of the Pharaohs to the World Cup, but there is a huge possibility he might miss the opening game against Uruguay. Of course, you can then say "right, we've got there, that's that", but for me it's not like that.
