Mane hails Salah 'mental strength' after World Cup heartache

Salah scored a penalty in Egypt's 3-1 World Cup defeat by Russia

And he's starting between the sticks for Egypt's final World Cup game against Saudi Arabia, overtaking Faryd Mondragon as the oldest player to play in the tournament.

According to media reports, the Liverpool striker was angry at being singled out for special attention during the team's stay in the Muslim region where Russian Federation had fought two brutal and costly wars to crush separatists since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The Egyptian FA tweeted a photo of Salah alongside Kadyrov on Friday at the banquet where he was given honorary citizenship. He told reporters (via the Guardian): "Only what Salah writes on his Twitter account should be counted on".

The Egyptian national team is based in Chechnya and defeat in their opening two matches at the World Cup has ensured the Pharaohs will not qualify out of their group this summer.

Mohamed Salah has been included in Egypt's starting XI in their last World Cup fixture of 2018 against Group A rivals Saudi Arabia, after the Egyptian FA have played down retirement rumours.

It's claimed by CNN that Salah is considering, or did consider, quitting the Egypt national team after the events of the past fortnight.

Salah, who is expected lead Egypt's attack against Saudi Arabia, netted 34 goals in 58 worldwide appearances.

Internet users are confused, anxious and appalled at the priest's actions, with one person writing, "That was uncalled for". He then unleashes a sharp slap against the baby's cheek, shocking those sat in the church, who can be heard to gasp.

The footballer received a wave of criticism after he took part in a press trip with the leader of the Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov at the start of the World Cup.

As noted by BBC Sport, Kadyrov has previously been accused of human rights violations, which he denied in an interview with the BBC recently.

"Tonight I signed a decree to grant the high honour to the great footballer who plays for Egypt and Liverpool".

Salah missed Egypt's World Cup opener against Uruguay as he continued to recover from the shoulder injury that forced him out of Liverpool's Champions League final defeat.

Salah had a disagreement with the EFA in April over his image rights.

"We spend the whole day together and he has never discussed this issue with any of the delegation's members".
