Egypt, Nigeria continue to splutter in World Cup warm-ups

Romelu Lukaku's reaction is priceless when asked if Man Utd are better than Belgium

Romelu Lukaku's reaction is priceless when asked if Man Utd are better than Belgium

A couple days ago, Real Madrid central defender and team captain Sergio Ramos hit back at all the criticism that he's received since his collision with Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final which resulted in a serious injury to the Liverpool and Egypt star.

Batshuayi, on for Lukaku, set up Marouane Fellaini for a final flourish in stoppage time to complete a sixth straight game without a win for Egypt.

Salah has definitely won Egypt a lot of fans around the world. During their final training camp, Egypt played two other friendlies as they drew with Kuwait and Colombia.

Illustrating just how much the tournament means to his country, the winger added: "For us to qualify for the World Cup is nearly like Spain winning the title".

Belgium eased past Egypt 3-0 in Brussels to extend the north African side's winless streak since qualifying for the tournament in Russian Federation starting next week.

"Now I'm better. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it approaches", said Salah, who arrived in Cairo on Thursday night to join his teammates, who will head to Russian Federation on Sunday. I will support Egypt in the World Cup for him.

Aston Villa settle tax bill but financial concerns remain
Grealish is likely to provide Villa's biggest cash boost to the coffers as the club look to stabilize after years of overspending.

Martinez admitted that he had been extremely concerned during Wednesday's match following several heavy tackles on Hazard but the Chelsea winger later revealed that Egypt's approach had actually helped him.

Egypt, held goalless for the second time in three matches, showed how much it misses the injured Mohamed Salah. Their playing style is close to that of Tunisia.

And having seen Ramos ridicule recent criticism against him over Salah and Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, Salah said that he has not forgiven the Spaniard for what happened.

'Maybe he could also tell me if I'm going to be ready for the World Cup?' But for me it's not like that, we want to make history, achieve something different.

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

"We're strong as a group, we all have the same objective, which is to win and that's the most important thing".
