World Cup Betting Tips: Salah 12/5 to score after being passed fit to face Uruguay

The Liverpool winger was confirmed to have recovered from a shoulder injury sustained in the Champions League final and is set to be Egypt's star man

Egypt’s hopes of progressing out of the group stage at the World Cup have been given a huge boost after Mohamed Salah was passed fit to play in their opening game against Uruguay.

National team coach Hector Cuper explained “Salah is doing very well indeed, he's recovered very quickly. We'll see how it goes today. I can almost assure you 100 per cent he'll play."

The African nation remain huge 11/2 (6.50) outsiders with dabblebet to beat their South American counterparts, but the availability of their talisman will surely give them a better chance than perhaps the bookies suggest.

Salah scored 44 times in an extraordinary debut season for Liverpool and will hope to continue that form against Uruguay, with dabblebet pricing him at 7/1 (8.0) to open the scoring or 12/5 (3.40) to find the net anytime.

In contrast, Edinson Cavani is 19/20 (1.95) to score inside 90 minutes whilst Luis Suarez is even money (2.0), showing how much faith the bookmakers have in Uruguay finding the net.

The 3/4 (1.95) odds on the Pharaohs failing to score only serve to back up that belief, but Salah’s return could inspire his teammates and both teams to score at 11/8 (2.38) certainly appeals more now that he is extremely likely to be involved.

Over 1.5 goals for Egypt is available at 9/2 (5.50), with over 2.5 goals priced at 11/8 (2.38) and Uruguay to win but concede can be found at a tempting 7/2 (4.50).

Salah beat the goalkeeper in 34 of his 52 matches for Liverpool last term and scored two or more eight times, with dabblebet offering 18/1 (19.0) that he hits a brace here.

With 33 goals in just 57 appearances for his country, the forward boasts an enviable record and is 100/1 (101.0) to take centre stage with his second international hat-trick.

Elsewhere in the anytime scorers market for Egypt, Marwan Mohsen is second-favourite at 15/4 (4.75) and Trezeguet is 4/1 (5.0).
