Mohamed Salah in preliminary Egypt squad for 2018 World Cup

One of the experts on the Sony Pictures Networks India panel for the event telecast, Bhutia said, "There is so much passion (for football) in South America". In 1934 Egypt became the first African team to play in the World Cup finals. The team will play in Group A along with hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay.

Mohamed Salah headlines Egypt's 29-man preliminary World Cup squad ahead of their friendlies against Kuwait and Belgium.

"The players on the reserve list will not travel with the team".

Egypt has qualified for the finals on two previous occasions, in 1934 and the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

"Salah will be bear huge responsibility and expectations".

Hector Cuper's side is a mix of locally-based players and overseas-based stars, with Salah, Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal), Ahmed Hegazi (West Bromwich Albion) and Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City) being the standout names. He might not get that kind of support. However, the record African Cup of Nations winners, Egypt, are set to enter the tournament with a far more risky team. Bhutia is of the view that new teams can be expected to produce bigger surprises than a former World Cup victor not qualifying. "In case of injuries, we provide medical reports to Federation Internationale de Football Association and changes can happen before the team's first game in the World Cup", he added. "The game is bigger than everything else".

Bhutia was present for the launch by SPN of a build-up campaign in four languages, named "Meri Doosri Country" featuring three films about Indian fans rooting for a World Cup team. The Sony channels will broadcast the 2018 edition of the quadrennial event.
