Egypt boss Cuper confirms Salah absence due to fitness worries

Egypt vs Uruguay Mohamed Salah Edinson Cavani

Two-time champions Uruguay begin their FIFA World Cup 2018 campaign against Egypt in a Group A clash in Ekaterinburg on Friday, June 15.

Host nation Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia will look to get the 2018 World Cup off to a flying start in Thursday evening's opener, while Egypt and Uruguay will have to wait until Friday afternoon to get their campaigns underway.

Mohamed Salah is expected to return from his shoulder injury for Egypt's World Cup clash against hosts Russian Federation on Tuesday.

Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani each passed up opportunities to clinch the points against a Pharaohs side who kept Mohamed Salah on the bench, but it was centre-back Gimenez who proved the hero.

Russian Federation top the group with three points, ahead of Uruguay on goal difference after hammering Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Thursday.

When is the World Cup Egypt vs Uruguay match?

Just before then, Suarez could have given Uruguay the lead in the first half as he missed an absolute sitter after hitting the side net from close range. "We want to have him ready for the next two matches".

Defender Jose Gimenez was the unlikely 89th-minute match victor for Tabarez's men, who also struck a post late on through Edinson Cavani.

"Portugal is among the candidates to take this cup home". I have seen many great players like (Lionel) Messi and (Diego) Maradona not living up to their potential in matches. Uruguay are the grey-haired veterans of Group A, with four players on the roster exceeding 100 worldwide caps.

Egypt's coach Hector Raul Cuper gestures from the touchline during their Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group A match against Uruguay at the Ekaterinburg Arena in Ekaterinburg on June 15, 2018.

Let's be real: there's a very strong chance you're only on this page to see if Salah is in the starting lineup.

The manager added: "A risk of playing a match is something we can't hide". This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.
