The session also saw Mohamed Salah training with the group once again and has been announced fully fit to play against Russia.
The Egypt national will be flying to Saint Petersburg Sunday afternoon to prepare for their game against hosts Russia.
Following their 1-0 defeat against Uruguay on Friday the Pharaohs will be looking to win their next two games to try and qualify for the round of 16. They will face Russia on Tuesday، before playing their final group stage game on June 25 against Saudi Arabia.
