Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah sat out training again on Sunday following the Egyptian team's arrival in Grozny ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Salah admits that he doesn't know if he'll play June 15 against Uruguay when Egypt's 2018 World Cup opens.

Reflecting on what transpired against Madrid, Salah told Marca in a preview of the interview: "Leaving the final was the worst moment of my career". The Pharaohs are set to play their first World Cup game on Friday against Uruguay in Ekaterinburg.

Belgium's World Cup place was never in doubt as they wracked up nine wins from their 10 qualifying games in a group featuring Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Cyprus and Gibraltar. It was not normal because we won the African Cup seven times.

Belgium eased past Egypt 3-0 in Brussels to extend the north African side's winless streak since qualifying for the tournament in Russian Federation starting next week. And it was something we all said: 'wow, we have to do it, we have to do it'.

The Saudi Arabia team have arrived in Russian Federation to begin their World Cup mission.

"I don't think our performance was ideal, far from it".

"We've got a great team and a great coach. We will enjoy the atmosphere and the tournament and, God willing, we will put in good performances", he added. However, Ramos states that Salah should have carried on and also hit back at reporters after accusing him with incidents involving Liverpool keeper Loris Karius and forward Roberto Firmino. "Then I let the board manage Chelsea the best way that they can". "It became common to win the [African Nations Cup], but not to qualify for the World Cup".

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

But Palestinian football officials praised World Cup-bound Argentina and their captain Messi for calling off the friendly, which Israel had moved to Jerusalem from the coastal city of Haifa. "That doesn't go through my head".
