Soccer-Salah starts for Egypt against Russia

ST PETERSBURG, June 19 (Reuters) - Egypt’s talismanic striker Mohamed Salah was named in their starting line-up for their second World Cup Group A match against Russia in St Petersburg on Tuesday.

Salah missed Egypt’s 1-0 defeat by Uruguay in their first match as he was still recovering from a shoulder injury he sustained in the Champions League final last month, and replaces Amr Warda in the only change made by coach Hector Cuper. (Reporting by Simon Jennings in St Petersburg)
