Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been included in Egypt's 23-man final squad for the 2018 World Cup, which was announced on Monday. "The players responded perfectly to our instructions, but Salah's absence affects any team negatively", Cuper said after the match in Bergamo, Italy.

Salah missed Egypt's goalless draw with Colombia last Friday as the North Africans continue their World Cup preparations.

The Liverpool star has been deemed fit to join Hector Cuper's men in Russian Federation as he continues rehabilitation from the issue sustained in the Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.

Egypt's final warm-up match will be against Belgium in Brussels on Wednesday.
