Mohamed Salah dislocated his shoulder in the match against Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday. He was suspected to be out of the World Cup starting from June 14 in Russia. So what is his latest injury update? Will he miss the World Cup?

Liverpool lost by 3-1 to Real Madrid on Saturday in Kiev. Liverpool and their star player Mohamed Salah had a very tragic night as he sustained a shoulder injury in the 29th minute of the game. Egyptian ace landed awkwardly after a challenge from Sergio Ramos, which made him quit the game early.

Later, the medical reports suggested that the Premier League top scorer had a dislocated shoulder and might miss the World Cup.

However, the latest reports have different to say. As per the Egyptian FA, Salah had 'a sprain to the shoulder ligaments' and still has the hope of traveling to Russia with Egyptian team. DR Mohammed Abu Ola who is currently treating the player also believes that Salah can be fit until Egypt's group stage game against Uruguay on June 15.

Making his first Social Media post since his injury, Salah seemed to be confident about his World Cup appearance." It was a very tough night, but I’m a fighter. Despite the odds, I’m confident that I’ll be in Russia to make you all proud", he wrote.

Ramos previously made a tweet about his injury and wished for his speedy recovery.

A shoulder dislocation can take up to 12-16 weeks for complete recovery. But Egypt's sports minister expects Salah to be fit in two weeks. It is obvious that he will be named in the squad on June 4 and will travel to Russia. However, his ground appearance is still in doubt.
