This will be his first time joining the national team under coach Hossam Hassan’s leadership, as Salah missed the last national team camp in March due to his rehabilitation and recovery from an injury sustained while playing for Liverpool.

There were previous reports of a rift between Salah and Hassan, adding tension to their professional relationship. However, both the Egyptian Football Association and Sports Minister Ashraf Sobhy have confirmed that any issues have been resolved, paving the way for Salah’s participation in the World Cup qualifiers.

Egypt currently leads Group A in the World Cup qualifiers, having won their previous matches against Djibouti and Sierra Leone with impressive scores of 6-0 and 2-0, respectively. The upcoming match against Burkina Faso in Cairo will be Hassan’s first competitive appearance as the Pharaohs’ coach.

The upcoming games are critical for Egypt’s aspirations to return to the World Cup stage, and Salah’s involvement is a major boost for the team’s chances. Fans are eagerly looking forward to seeing their captain lead the Pharaohs to victory in these pivotal matches.
