Egypt striker, Mohamed Salah is optimistic he’ll be fit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Liverpool forward injured his left shoulder in Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid and was forced to leave the pitch after just 29 minutes following a challenge with Sergio Ramos.

There were reports Salah’s shoulder injury will rule him out for two months, consequently missing the 2018 World Cup.

But the 25-year-old remains confident of a quick recovery and playing at Egypt's first World Cup appearance since 1990.

Salah’s injury brings an unfortunate end to an excellent debut season at Anfield which saw him score 44 goals and lay on a further 15 assists across all competitions.

The World Cup begins on June 14 with Egypt’s opening game against Uruguay the following day in Yekaterinburg.
