Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has given Egypt a timely boost after he joined the squad's training session on Wednesday.
Salah had been a doubt after suffering a shoulder injury in Liverpool's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26.

However, the 25-year-old was spotted taking part in the session - going through a range of warm-up exercises with his team-mates.
Team director Ihab Lahita said: "There's a good degree of progress but no definitive decision on whether he takes part, as we are following his case day by day."
On Monday, Egypt's medical staff stated they remained unsure whether he would be fit for their opening game as he did not take part in a training session.
Their World Cup campaign begins on Friday in Group A against Uruguay. Russia and Saudi Arabia complete that group.
If Salah does not make it back in time for Uruguay, his next target will be getting fit for a clash with hosts Russia on June 19, before Egypt round off their group campaign against Saudi Arabia in Volgograd six days later.
He has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season for Liverpool.
Egypt are training at the Akhmat-Arena in Chechnya's capital Grozny.
