Mohamed Salah has hit back at Sergio Ramos after the Spanish defender suggested that he could have played on in the Champions League final with the aid of pain-killing injection despite dislocating his shoulder.

Having been forced off injured during Liverpool's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, Mohamed Salah feared he was set to miss the World Cup.

Belgium star Eden Hazard said he will support Egypt at the World Cup for his friend Mohamed Salah following Wednesday's worldwide friendly.

He was included in the Egyptian squad announced on Monday.

Labelled by Salah's Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino as an "idiot", Ramos could come up against Salah's Egypt in Russian Federation in what would prove an intriguing match-up given what happened in Ukraine.

The prospect of a fully-fit Salah is less of a case fro celebration among Group A opponents Uruguay, Russia and Saudi Arabia. "Moments later, I also thought about the possibility of not playing in the World Cup and that was a devastating thought", Salah added. "If we want to go far in the World Cup, we'll have to be as solid as we were tonight and keep our energy".

"After the goalkeeper said that I dazed him with a clash with me I am only missing (Roberto) Firmino saying that he got a cold because a drop of my sweat!"

The defeat was Egypt's final warmup before Russian Federation, while Belgium plays Costa Rica on Monday.

"It's hard to say, but I think our group and togetherness", he said when asked about the strengths of his national team.

"Tactically. He's helped me to defend better, but he also finds a way to make it easier to attack".

"He grabbed my arm first and I fell to the other side, the injury happened to the other arm and they said that I gave him a judo hold", stated Ramos.

Dries Mertens and Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne showed a fluidity in their play that will concern England manager Gareth Southgate, but it was Hazard who added the second goal on 38 minutes.
