LONDON (AP) - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielder Mohamed Elneny should be fit to play for Egypt at the World Cup.

Elneny hurt his left ankle and was carried off on a stretcher during Arsenal’s Premier League game against West Ham on Sunday.

Wenger says Elneny “is out certainly for the rest of the season (for Arsenal) … but I think he will be available to Egypt at the World Cup.”

Egypt has qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1990 and opens its Group A campaign on June 15 against Uruguay.
