Salah worked his first chance of the game three minutes from half-time when a nice dummy by a teammate gave him space at the top of the box but his scooped, left-footed shot sailed wide off the target.
Egypt right-back Ahmed Fathi, who captained the side in the last game, has shaken off a minor muscle problem.
However, the Liverpool star is expected to start this game, despite ongoing speculation about his fitness.
At the weekend he needed the help of three team-mates to put a shirt on during a training session in Grozny.
England smashes ODI world record against Australia
Australia have won the toss at Trent Bridge in an ODI they must win to keep the series alive. New Zealand women's 490/4 against Ireland few days ago is still the highest in all ODIs.
The game will be officiated by Paraguayan referee Enrique Cáceres, who is set to take charge of his first game at the World Cup.
Russia, on the other hand, lost a key player in Alan Dzagoev, who hobbled off the pitch with a hamstring injury in the game against Saudi Arabia, although they showed their strength with Denis Cheryshev, who came off the bench to score twice, and is likely to start the game as a result.
Cheryshev added: "The team is getting ready for Egypt".
"Let's see what Salah can do against us".
Egypt midfielder Mohamed Elneny: "We all believe that we're able to beat them".
"Whether Mo Salah plays or not, it's going to be a hard game for us anyway".

Finally, Mourinho concluded that Russia's match against Egypt is crucial as the Uruguay match is a hard one, "The game against Egypt is the crucial match of the group".
Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Russia are unbeaten against African teams at the World Cup (W2, D1), including a 6-1 win over Cameroon in 1994 in which Oleg Salenko scored five.
In the end, however, the response was unable to conjure any sort of comeback for the Egyptians, as Stanislav Cherchesov's charges eased to an emphatic win that now leaves the hosts on the verge of reaching the knockout stages.
So far, African nations have not been so convincing in the World Cup.
The Pharaohs have failed to score in each of their last three World Cup matches.
