While Salah has talked up his hopes of starting against Uruguay in Yekaterinburg, Ehab Lehita, the Egyptian FA's managing director, said: "We're keeping an eye on the situation day by day".
Egypt will take to their first World Cup finals since 1990, after Salah himself fired them to Russian Federation with a last-minute penalty against Congo in a play-off fixture.
Salah, 25, joined in with his teammates in training on Saturday, but was left out of overly physical elements as he continues to recover from a dislocated shoulder that he sustained in Liverpool's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Mohamed Salah appeared uncomfortable and eager to protect his injured shoulder as an Egypt fan attempted to claim a selfie with the Liverpool star.
Team doctor Mohamed Abou al-Ela admitted the striker, who scored 44 goals for Liverpool this season, was unlikely to play in Egypt's opening Group A match against Uruguay on Friday.

"I'm excited. God willing I'm well-prepared and things are going well and my morale is high", he told AFP on Sunday.
