Egypt vs. Uruguay – Highlights & Goal (WC Russia2018)
After Russia officially got the games started in some interesting style yesterday, Egypt and Uruguay will be looking to follow in the footsteps of the host nation by beginning their campaigns with three points – especially as Russia’s goal difference was boosted significantly against Saudi Arabia.
The big news from Egypt’s perspective is that, despite being tipped as almost certain to start, Hector Cuper only names Salah on the bench as the Liverpool star pushes for a return from injury. In his absence, the Pharaohs will look towards Al Ahly’s Mohsen to get the goals.
Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez names a strong line-up and the one that many would expect to see, with experienced strikers Cavani and Suarez leading the line. Arsenal fans should keep an eye on substitute Torreira, who’s widely linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium from Sampdoria.
Egypt XI: Mohamed El-Shenawy; Ahmed Fathy, Ahmed Hegazi, Ali Gabr, Mohamed Shafy; Mohamed Elneny, Tarek Hamed; Amr Warda, Abdallah El Said, Trezeguet; Marwan Mohsen.
