Eden Hazard Says He Will Support Egypt At The World Cup For Mo Salah

Eden Hazard Says He Will Support Egypt At The World Cup For Mo Salah

Eden Hazard has his own World Cup campaign with Belgium to focus on but he's still finding time to support another nation in a different group, it seems.

The Chelsea star scored in 3-0 friendly over Egypt last night but wished them well for their third World Cup appearance, hoping that his former colleague Mo Salah will be fit and firing for his debut in the showpiece after his nasty shoulder injury suffered in the Champions League.

What's more, the former Lillie man even revealed he will be supporting Hector Cuper's side purely because of his relationship with Liverpool sensation Salah, who he played with briefly at Stamford Bridge.

We are glad about defeating Egypt 3-0. I wish Salah the best and hope he returns," he is quoted as saying by Fot Mob.

"I will support Egypt in the World Cup for him. Egypt are so different without Salah but they still performed well with compact lines. Their playing style is close to that of Tunisia.

"I spoke with Salah after the Champions League final and sent him a message, as I said he is my friend and I want to see him in the World Cup."

Currently rehabbing his shoulder, the 44-goal hero has been included in Egypt's squad for the World Cup - which gets underway against Uruguay in the second game in Group A on 15 June.

Cuper gave the following line to ESPN:

"My opinion is that Salah has an important injury and is now recovering, we are optimistic that he can play at the World Cup. Many things are said, but the reality is what the doctors confirm."
