Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been included in Egypt's 23-man final squad for the 2018 World Cup, which was announced on Monday.

The 25-year-old is currently recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in a tussle with Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos in the Champions League final late last month.

Salah will continue to have treatment on his damaged left shoulder before joining up with Héctor Cúper's squad on 9 June, six days before the Pharoahs get their campaign underway against Uruguay in Ekaterinburg.

Salah has been undergoing his recuperation in Benicassim, in north-east Spain, and took to social media on Sunday with a positive update on his fitness.

"Good feelings," he wrote on his Twitter account, in a message accompanied by a photograph of him carrying out a stretching exercise on his shoulder.
