WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN—13 DAYS
Sergio Ramos has reportedly been forced to change his phone number following threats over his Mohamed Salah challenge.
The Real Madrid defender brought down his Liverpool rival in the Champions League final, forcing the Egyptian to be substituted off with a shoulder injury.
Salah's World Cup campaign is now in jeopardy, although Egypt officials expect him to recover just in time for the opening game against Uruguay on June 15.
Ramos has been on the end of a significant social media backlash since the incident, with many believing that he injured Salah intentionally.
One petition to get him retrospectively banned for the challenge has now passed half a million signatures.
Meanwhile, Egypt's national team have claimed that Salah is on course to be fit in time for the World Cup.
Writing on their federation Facebook page: “The delegation of the national team was briefed on the recovery programme for the player, who is walking well.“He aims to join the squad in the World Cup and this great player is determined to catch up with his team-mates.”
