Mohamed Salah has hit back at Sergio Ramos after the Spanish defender suggested that he could have played on in the Champions League final with the aid of pain-killing injection despite dislocating his shoulder.

The 25-year-old went off with a shoulder problem in the first half of Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in last month's Champions League final but the speedy forward expects to play some part in Egypt's first Group A fixture in Russian Federation.

Belgium and Egypt face off in a pre-World Cup friendly on Wednesday in Brussels.

"Egypt have good players".

Egypt, held goalless for the second time in three matches, showed how much it misses the injured Mohamed Salah.

Salah went on to confirm he is hoping to be fit to play in Egypt's first World Cup game against Uruguay next Friday, as he looked forward to the finals in Russian Federation.

"Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation are the other teams in Egypt's group. I think I've improved with him", he explained.

World Cup-bound Panama saw their hopes of a morale-boosting pre-tournament win crumble after just four minutes in a 1-0 defeat to Norway on Wednesday.

The Liverpool star, who has been sidelined by a shoulder injury sustained in the Champions League final, gave the promising update in a farewell event hosted by Egypt president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

The Liverpool superstar left the field in tears as his Champions League dream was crushed, simultaneously leaving his World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.

"The pressure was to qualify for the World Cup".

"We've got a great team and a great coach".

And having seen Ramos ridicule recent criticism against him over Salah and Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, Salah said that he has not forgiven the Spaniard for what happened.

Sticking with a three-man defence the Belgians, who are in Group G, the same as England, showed more cutting edge than in their goalless draw against Portugal on Saturday.
