Egypt's Mohamed Salah dribbles for first time since injuring shoulder

Mohamed Salah returned to Egypt training ahead of their opening World Cup match against Uruguay.

GROZNY, Russia -- Mohamed Salah joined the rest of Egypt's World Cup squad for warmup drills on Tuesday and dribbled for the first time since injuring his left shoulder in last month's Champions League final.

The Liverpool forward also appeared to run faster than he had during the Pharoahs' previous two training sessions before he split off to train separately.

Team officials said his participation in Egypt's opener against Uruguay on Friday at Yekaterinburg remains uncertain.

Executive director Ihab Leheta said the squad's starting XI would be decided before Egypt departs Wednesday from their base in Grozny, Russia.

The 25-year-old Salah has not played since injuring his left shoulder in Liverpool's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last month.

Egypt are playing in their first World Cup since 1990.

Their group also includes Saudi Arabia and host Russia.
