Egypt goalkeeper El Hadary becomes World Cup's oldest player

Egypt are already out of the World Cup after losing both of their opening two matches

If Salah were to quit the national team, it would be a major embarrassment to the federation and the government, which chose to base the team in Grozny.

Liverpool star Mo Salah is considering ending his worldwide career when the World Cup reaches its conclusion.

'A source with knowledge of Salah's position on the matter confirmed this stance to ESPN FC, adding that the player is now considering his future with his national team'.

Salah was pictured walking beside Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov when he was battling to regain fitness and recover from the shoulder injury suffered against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Chechnya leader Kadyrov is backed by the Kremlin but is under sanctions imposed by the United States, which accuses him of contravening human rights.

Egyptian Football Association president Hany Abo Rida earlier denied media reports Liverpool had put pressure on them to leave out Salah, who scored 44 goals for the English Premier League club last season. He did play, and score, in the second match, a loss to hosts Russian Federation.

Neither Salah nor his agent commented on the report, which went viral in the football-mad country.

A video clip of the ceremony showed Kadyrov seated at a table flanked by Salah and Hany Abo Rida, chairman of Egypt's football federation.

"We are here at a sports event and we are following FIFA procedures, we don't discuss politics, and if there is any political discussion, it should be directed to FIFA", Egypt FA spokesman Ossama Ismail said on Monday. In April the player was angered by the use of his image on the national team plane, which appeared alongside the logo of the official team sponsor WE.

The Associated Press reported that Salah was angry about a team banquet hosted by the Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who used the dinner to grant Salah "honorary citizenship". Our enemies are paid to write articles like that.
