Uruguay defender Diego Godin, who plays in Spain for Atletico Madrid, did not take kindly to an "inopportune" question in a subsequent press conference asking if he meant to follow Ramos in giving Salah some roughhouse treatment.

"I can nearly assure you 100 per cent he will play, save unforeseen circumstances at the very last minute", said Cuper.

"[Salah] didn't play in this game because there was a small chance that something could happen to him", confirmed Cuper post-match.

Egypt play Uruguay - tipped by some to be dark horses - in Yekaterinburg in just the second game of the tournament, following Russian Federation against Saudi Arabia in the opening match.

Salah, 25, has not played since injuring shoulder ligaments during Liverpool's Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid on May 26.

Luis Suarez will be seeking redemption when Le Celeste take on Egypt in his first World Cup appearance since being thrown out of the football tournament back in 2014 for deliberately biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

The Ahly keeper also dived at his feet to thwart him in a one-on-one situation with 17 minutes remaining and pulled off another great save to claw away a rasping shot from Edinson Cavani, earning the man of the match award.
