Sergio Ramos has 'easy conscience' as Liverpool's Mohamed Salah fails to start World Cup

Uruguay have dismissed suggestions they will target Mohamed Salah – as Sergio Ramos continued the defense of the injury suffered by the Liverpool forward.

Salah's fitness was the subject of much discussion ahead of the World Cup after being forced out of the Champions League final last month due to a shoulder problem sustained during a tussle with Real Madrid skipper Ramos.

The Reds forward began on the bench for Egypt's Group A opener against Uruguay on Friday afternoon.

And before the game, Uruguay captain Diego Godin was unhappy when asked if he and his team-mates would target Salah similar to the manner Ramos did in Kiev.

“That is a very inopportune question,” said Godin.

“I don’t think it’s pertinent. I don’t think anyone has bad will or tries to deliberately injure a player. These things happen in football, unfortunately.”

Ramos, meanwhile, was once again asked about Salah ahead of Spain's Group A clash against Portugal on Friday evening.

“I sleep well at night, I have an easy conscience,” he grinned. “Some people tried to use certain arguments to become more popular but I am who I am – and I rest easy. If anyone has any doubts about me, they can check my CV.

 “On that note, I’m going to finish this press conference now.”
