Egyptian national team's forward Mohamed Salah is set to make his World Cup debut for Egypt against Russia in their Group A game on June 19.

The player's agent Ramy Abbas Issa let the world know Salah was ready to feature against the Russians by tweeting: 'Mohamed is fit.'

The official FIFA Egypt Twitter account confirmed Salah's return to full fitness when they tweeted on Saturday: 'Salah participated in training with his team-mates for the entire session and he is ready to play against Russia according to technical staff.

Egypt need to take at least a point against Russia to keep their hopes of reaching the knock-out stages alive, Daily Mail reported.
