Egypt and Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has joined his national teammates in camp ahead of their friendly international against Portugal.

The Pharaohs international’s arrival has been confirmed by the Egyptian Football Association on Facebook.

Moreover, the EFA announced that coach Hector Cuper will have his 28-man squad ready for the clash on Friday night.

The North African giants will also face Greece on March 27 as they prepare for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

"Salah arrived from England to join his teammates in the preparatory camp in Zurich," the EFA said on its official Facebook page.

"The whole 28-man squad is now available for the two friendly matches against Portugal and Greece.”

Egypt reached the world's most prestigious tournament, which will kick off in Russia in June after ending a 28-year old drought.

Meanwhile, the EFA has roped in English nutritionist Laurent Bannock, Irish trainer John Kelly and Argentinean assistant coach Gustavo for their preparatory camp in Switzerland.

At the FIFA World Cup, Egypt have been placed in Group A of the competition along with hosts Russia, Uruguay and Saudi Arabia.
