Portugal star forward Cristiano Ronaldo heaped praise on Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, wishing him a speedy recovery before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

However, the 25-year-old's participation in Egypt's World Cup opener against Uruguay on Friday remains uncertain.

Salah had a record-breaking season with Liverpool FC in the Premier League.

With 44 goals and 16 assists in 52 games in all competitions, Salah is a now the key element in the squad of Hector Cuper.

Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d'Or victor, expressed his admiration of Salah. This is because Atleti are set to reward the Frenchman with a new contract worth a reported 23m euros a year, pushing Ronaldo further down the list of the world's best-paid players.

Asked about whether Salah can be a contender for the Ballon d'Or, Ronaldo said, "Many people talk about the Cristiano Ronaldo-Messi battle but there are other players who have the chances to compete in the race. I hope his injury in the final in Kiev doesn't keep him out", Ronaldo said. "The Egyptian is one of them".

Plastic in the sea is such a serious threat that it is considered one of the most serious environmental emergencies in the world. By doing so, severe environmental consequences can be prevented and the natural habitat will be liberated from plastics.

It is now unclear when Salah will be back in action.

The football world is excited to see if Cristiano Ronaldo can carry on the momentum from winning Euro 2016 while at his peak, and Deco is no exception.

Ronaldo is a player who needs to know that his peers consider him to be the best.

All of them, by the way, included in the application of their national teams in the 2018 world Cup.

Chelsea were also a possible destination - with club owner Roman Abramovich keen to invest in a world star once more - until the Blues' failure to qualify for the Champions League was confirmed.
