Egypt's Salah: Fans are source of strength
MOSCOW, June 19, 2018 (MENA) - Egyptian and Liverpool player Mohamed Salah sent a message to Egyptian fans, saying he is ready for Egypt's second group match against Russia in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Salah uploaded a video on his instagram account, saying: "You might think the pressure of all these people on me to score would form a load that could destroy any player," adding that he does not see it this way, stressing those people are the source of his strength and creativity and are not a load on him.
He said when he goes down the field they are with him and this makes him 100 million times stronger.
Egypt was defeated 1-0 by Uruguay in its first match of group A of the world cup, while Saudi Arabia lost 5-0 to host Russia.
Salah is expected to play the match between Egypt and Russia on Tuesday.
