The PFA, FWA and Premier League Player of the Year scored 32 goals in his second stint back in the Premier League, three more than Drogba's best tally of 29 in Chelsea's 2009/10 title-winning season under Carlo Ancelotti.

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez, a former player at Salah's club Liverpool, was named in the starting lineup for Uruguay in attack along with Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani. In a group comprising hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay, arguably the weakest group in the tournament, hopes are high in Egypt that progression is a realistic possibility.

"That is a very inopportune question", Godin responded, evidently irritated by the implication that Uruguay might attempt to inflict the sort of injury on Egypt's talisman that had materialised from the Ramos clash.

They also drew with Colombia‚ Ghana and Kuwait‚ and lost to Greece and Portugal.

The pair will be licking their lips at the prospect of getting stuck into the defence of a Saudi Arabian team thrashed 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation in the World Cup opener on Thursday.
