Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will be fit to play some part in Egyptâ€™s World Cup campaign, his country says.
Salah injured his shoulder during Liverpoolâ€™s Champions League final loss to Real Madrid on Saturday, prompting concerns he might miss the tournament.
But Egyptâ€™s national team doctor has met Salah, and the countryâ€™s football association said the strikerâ€™s absence â€œwill not exceedâ€ three weeks.
Egyptâ€™s opening World Cup fixture is against Uruguay on 15 June.
Salah, 25, met the national team doctor and Egyptian FA president Hany Abu Rida in Spain on Wednesday.
The Egyptian FA tweeted afterwards: â€œAfter the meeting of Abu Rida and the doctor of the national team in Spain today, the Football Association reaffirms Salah in the World Cup, God willing, will not exceed the absence of three weeks.â€
Egyptâ€™s second fixture is against Russia on 19 June and they conclude their group against Saudi Arabia on 25 June.
Salah struck a 95th-minute penalty in Egyptâ€™s final qualification game to send them to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.
But in the Champions League final â€“ the last fixture of a season in which he scored 44 goals for his club â€“ he left the pitch in tears after landing heavily on his shoulder following a challenge by Real Madridâ€™s Sergio Ramos.
At the time Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp described the injury as â€œreally seriousâ€ but in the aftermath of the final, the Egyptian FA had tweeted that Salahâ€™s X-ray showed he had a â€œsprain in the shoulder ligamentsâ€ and that it was â€œoptimisticâ€ he would be fit for the World Cup in Russia.
