Eden Hazard Gives Message of Support for Egypt, Mo Salah

FIFA World Cup Group A Profile Russia Big Name At Home Mohamed Salah Grabs Imagination Egypt will be pinning their hopes for the timely return of their talismanic striker Mohamed Salah

Hosts Russia will begin next week's World Cup as the lowest ranked of the 32 teams participating in the tournament, after Federation Internationale de Football Association released its monthly world rankings on Thursday.

Belgium continued to dominate after the interval and midfielder Fellaini added a third in stoppage time, after some clever footwork from Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi.

"I don't think our performance was ideal, far from it", said Belgium coach Roberto Martinez.

"In this stage of his recovery it is not just treatment for his shoulder, but we also need to improve his stamina and fitness level because the injury has prevented him to train like normal".

"Any team is going to miss the goal scoring threat of Mo Salah. But what I like is that when we make mistakes we've got the togetherness to try to overcome them and I don't think we had that before and that's very pleasing".

Egypt should have taken the lead in the 23rd minute when Mohamed Abdelshafy swung in an enticing cross from the left, but Marwan Mohsen, unmarked in the middle, headed wide a chance Salah likely would have scored. Kompany injured his groin on Saturday during Belgium's lackluster 0-0 draw with Portugal.

Belgium's head coach, Roberto Martínez, had raised eyebrows by slotting Laurent Ciman into the place of injured captain Vicent Kompany.

Will he continue his incredible goalscoring form in Russian Federation this summer?

The Chelsea forward, 27, turned from provider to finisher as he side-footed Yannick Carrasco's cross past the sprawling El-Hadary from close range.

Batshuayi set up Fellaini's goal by beating an Egypt defender and cutting back the ball.

We are glad about defeating Egypt 3-0.

Belgium will complete their warm-up fixtures with another home tie, against Costa Rica, next Monday after which Martinez must decide on his final 23-man squad for Russian Federation.

Nigeria, who have lost three of their last four games and drawn the other, kick off their World Cup campaign against Croatia on June 16, but they looked disinterested during the opening half as the Czechs dominated.
