The Liverpool ace’s absence was keenly felt against Uruguay after his goalscoring exploits raised hopes he could be the hero.
Salah scored the crucial goal that sent his country to Russia and has an entire country’s hopes resting on him.
After he suffered a dislocated shoulder in the Champions League final against Real Madrid, it was feared Salah’s tournament would be over.
