Adjust Comment Print

Forward Mo Salah has landed in Russian Federation with the Egypt national team ahead of the 2018 World Cup, where he and the squad were immediately treated to the traditional "lezginka" dance by locals at the team's base in Chechnya. I was also angry and sad that I couldn't continue playing.

A challenge from Real Madrid skipper Ramos left the Liverpool star with an injured shoulder, and he was forced off before half time in the Kiev match on 26 May.

Belgium are in the same World Cup group as England, but first up are games against Panama and Tunisia over the next fortnight.

"He grabbed my arm first and I fell to the other side, the injury happened to the other arm and they said that I gave him a judo hold", stated Ramos. How do you stop him?

Asked if he thinks the fall with Ramos was normal, the Pharaohs star said: "I don't know".

"I came for this historic moment, and to admire my country's team".

Belgium go to the World Cup with arguably one of the most talented squads in the entire competition, boasting a host of players who have starred in Europe's biggest leagues.

Simona Halep surges back against Sloane Stephens to win French Open
Stephens has made the second week in Paris in five of her seven appearances and Keys is slowly coming to terms with the surface. After three losses in major finals, maybe Halep was trying to convince herself as much as anyone else she actually could do it.

Speaking to Marca on Saturday, the 25-year-old winger said that Ramos did send him a message but he never replied saying it was fine, "He sent me a message, but I never told him it was "fine"".

"The pressure was to qualify for the World Cup".

The record seven-time African champions have qualified for the World Cup for only the third time and first since 1990.

"I don't think our performance was ideal, far from it", said Belgium coach Roberto Martinez. Of course, you can then say "right, we've got there, that's that", but for me it's not like that. "That is not going through my head".

"Could be, Spain or Portugal".

"I played with Diego Costa and Azpilicueta at Chelsea (2013-15), with Alberto Moreno [not called] at Liverpool. they have some top players. As a man he is top top top, and as a footballer he is very good".

But Palestinian football officials praised World Cup-bound Argentina and their captain Messi for calling off the friendly, which Israel had moved to Jerusalem from the coastal city of Haifa. Brazil won it. 2-1?
