Salah was well out sight by the time the cake was sliced.

Mohamed Salah is a looming obstacle as Russian Federation attempt to virtually secure their place in the knockout stages of the World Cup in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.

The Liverpool forward was forced off in the first half of his club's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last month due to a shoulder injury.

An Egypt team official has confirmed goalkeeper Mohamed Elshenawy declined to receive a player of the match trophy at the World Cup for religious reasons.

Egypt team director Ihab Leheta told The Associated Press on Sunday that Elshenawy said a "few words" and posed for photos in a brief ceremony, but didn't take the goblet.

Mohamed Salah celebrated his 26th birthday with a Chechen cake and the news that he will play in Egypt's next World Cup match.

Slain Kansas deputies were both parents
Kelli Bailiff, a spokeswoman for the sheriff, said the two slain deputies were "bright and intelligent wonderful personalities". In 2015, Wyandotte County Deputy Scott Wood was shot seven times but survived. "It's a tremendous, great loss to our agency".

Egypt lost 1-0 to Uruguay in yesterday's game after an 89th minute goal from Jose Gimenez, however, El-Shenawy worked his arse off in the game, making him a truly worthy recipient of the title of Man of the Match - regardless of whether he chooses to pick up the trophy or not.

"Russia's game is fateful and hard because of our defeat against Uruguay", said Leheta.

Denis Cheryshev scored twice in a flying start for the hosts against Saudi Arabia.

The Argentine coach explained that he expects Salah to be back ahead of their next game against World Cup hosts, Russia.

A close ally of President Vladimir Putin, Mutko oversaw preparations for the tournament at a cost of more than $13 billion. "We will see what he is capable of showing against us".

Denis Cheryshev was Russia's hero against Saudi Arabia as he came off the bench to score twice.
