The concert, which goes under the tagline "Egypt celebrates the World Cup", aims to support the Egyptian national team before their second World Cup match in Russian Federation, the first having been against Uruguay on the 15th of June.

Denis Cheryshev, meanwhile, is expected to start after impressing off the bench against Saudi Arabia.

"I played against (Egypt head coach Hector) Cuper's teams before, he is the most tactical coach, you never know how to approach his teams".

But Cherchesov said he was not particularly concerned. He plays as a team player and that for me is extremely important nowadays.

What is the team news?

Cuper planned on starting Liverpool star Salah against Uruguay because he thought he was fully fit.

Russia's convincing win over the Saudis was preceded by a seven-match winless streak and a spate of injuries that wiped out nearly the entire defence line.

But the men in red are now on the cusp of making their first knockout stage of a World Cup in post-Soviet history.

The achievement would a huge relief for both players and Russians who anxious about being humiliated on the world's biggest sporting stage.

Egypt superstar Mohamed Salah may have enjoyed a record-breaking Premier League season with Liverpool but he it's been claimed he's "not a world-class football star".

Russia's veteran goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev said he would rather focus on winning than any particular opposing player. I say it with all due respect to the other players in the Egyptian squad.

Cavani is quoted as saying by Metro: "I took Salah's shirt as a gift for my children, who also see him as a star".
