Egypt defender Ali Gabr sustained a facial injury during Tuesday’s training session but the Egyptian Football Association said he should be fit for the World Cup opener against Uruguay on Friday.
"Gabr has sustained a knock to his face and left the training with the team's doctor Mohamed Aboul-Ela to undergo scans،" the EFA said، but latter added that the scans showed Gabr was not seriously hurt and would be available for Egypt's opening Group A clash according to Al Ahram.
"The whole 23-man squad took part in the trainings، including Abdallah El-Said and Amr Warda، as they have fully recovered from their injuries،" the EFA added.
The highlight of the training was the participation of the team's star Mohamed Salah، but he is still doubt for Friday’s Uruguay game.
The team are flying to Yekaterinburg on Wednesday، two hours away from where they are staying in Grozny، after they hold the morning training session.
Egypt will be making their first World Cup appearance since 1990، when they were eliminated at the group stage.
The seven-time African champions will take on hosts Russia on 19 June before facing Saudi Arabia in their final group stage game on 25 June.
