Russia: Cuper laments Salah injury following Egypt defeat

Egypt national team manager Hector Cuper lamented Mohamed Salah's injury due to which he could not train with the rest of the team in the weeks leading up to the World Cup tournament. Cuper spoke at a press conference following his team's 3:1 defeat against Russia in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.

Cuper said, "I would hope that his injury had not occurred, but that happened, and that's they way it is. The only thing I am sad about is that I would like him to have been present at the training camps with everybody else. Those were vital weeks to work on all the aspects of the team. Of course, again the priority for him was to recover completely from his shoulder injury and have him available as soon as possible. We did not have him available against Uruguay. We've had him only today. That simply was not enough."

Head coach of the Russian national team Stanislav Cherchesov argued that Egypt "needed to win in order to maintain their chances, while we just wanted to win. Those are two psychological polarities."
