Egypt’s opening fixture in Group A is against Uruguay on June 15. They then face Russia on June 19 and Saudi Arabia on June 25.“He is sad about what happened but he is totally focused on recovery and seeing when he can be ready,” Pons told Spanish daily, Marca.“In principle it will be three to four weeks but we are going to try to reduce those deadlines, thatâ€™s the big goal.”Salah has flown to Spain to undergo treatment, accompanied by doctors from both Liverpool and the Egyptian national team.The 25-year-old had to be substituted during the first half of Liverpool’s defeat in Kiev after being pulled to the ground by Sergio Ramos.He left the field in tears but appeared more optimistic on Sunday, when he wrote on Twitter: “It was a very tough night, but I’m a fighter.“Despite the odds, I’m confident that I’ll be in Russia to make you all proud. Your love and support will give me the strength I need.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Mohamed Salah faces a fight to play in any of Egypt’s World Cup group games, according to one of Liverpool’s physiotherapists.Club physio Ruben Pons has estimated Salah would normally need “three to four weeks” to recover from the left shoulder injury he sustained during Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid.A three-week absence would keep Salah out of action until June 19 while four weeks would see the forward sidelined until June 26, the day after Egypt’s last group game. Salah may also then need to regain a degree of match fitness.
Some of it came in the form of Lamonte Turner’s foul of Carsen Edwards with two seconds remaining in regulation. Edwards missed his 3-point attempt, but the foul sent him to the line, where he hit two of three attempts to knot the game 82-82 and force OT. The Boilermakers eventually won 99-94.SN’s MARCH MADNESS HQLive NCAA bracket | Live scoreboard | Full TV scheduleThe internet, it seems, can’t agree wither Turner should have been called for the foul. The play in question, for review:Upon further review … The foul call that gave Carsen Edwards three free throws at the close of regulation should never have been awarded. Terrible foul call. pic.twitter.com/hGklaoBXlZ— Kyle Boone (@Kyle__Boone) March 29, 2019Tennessee coach Rick Barnes told reporters after the game he thought it was a foul. Turner, for his part, said it shouldn’t have been called. Thursday’s Sweet 16 matchup between 2-seed Tennessee and 3-seed Purdue was a phenomenal game, one of the best thus far in the 2019 NCAA Tournament. It featured lights-out shooting from both teams, a tremendous comeback by the Volunteers and an overtime finish.It also featured a fair amount of controversy. “I told the refs all game, ‘(Edwards is) kicking his legs out every time he shoots,'” he told reporters after the game (per Bleacher Report).While it does look like Edwards extends his leg — and that Turner did attempt to avoid bumping him on his way down — Turner did touch him in the air with his right hip.In the end, it was a judgment call, and certainly not an egregious one. That may be cold comfort for Volunteers fans, but they can take solace, perhaps, in the fact their team played one of the most exciting games of this tournament.
