Meanwhile, Egyptian FA's managing director Ehab Lehita says it is too early to tell if Salah will be fit for his nation's World Cup opener against Uruguay.

Portugal star forward Cristiano Ronaldo heaped praise on Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, wishing him a speedy recovery before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. He said that the Liverpool striker was just as good as Argentina's Lionel Messi. In addition to that, the 25-year old has 44 goals in total across all competitions in 52 appearances.

They have shared the past 10 Ballons d'Or between them, but Ronaldo has overtaken Messi when it comes to Champions League titles after lifting his fourth in the past five years with Real last month.

Ronaldo after winning the Champions League in Kiev has hinted at his departure from real Madrid.

Although PSG could lose Neymar after one year, Valdano believes the move was still worthwhile for the club, who won a domestic treble despite the Brazilian missing the end of the season with a fractured foot.

"Of course, if you ask every player they want to win the World Cup, they dream about that for sure, Ronaldo is the same", Deco said. Salah is certainly one of them.

"He is gradually getting better". However, soon after the win, Santiago Bernabéu was shaking with two jolts of probable Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo exits from the club in post-win comments made by the two.

Cristiano Ronaldo even tipped the "Egyptian King" as a potential Ballon d'Or contender.

This is the third time that Egypt have qualified for the FIFA World Cup.
