Egypt vs Uruguay; Can Mo Salah inspire the Pharaohs to victory?

World Cup 2018 Russia v Saudi Arabia Egypt v Uruguay Odds Tips And Predictions Egypt coach: Salah "almost 100 per cent" to play vs. Uruguay - Article

Real Madrid and Spain captain Sergio Ramos was the man who inflicted the shoulder injury that put Salah's World Cup at risk.

Much of the pre-match focus has been on the fitness of Egypt star Mohamed Salah - but Uruguay will have their own superstar striker aiming to impress.

Salah had been seen in training, although he was taking induvidual sessions, and there was still some doubt over his participation.

The defeat means that Egypt are still yet to win a World Cup match in five attempts, but they will probably have to take the three points against Russian Federation to stay in with a chance of going through.

Russian Federation leads Group A on goal difference after beating Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Thursday (Friday NZT) in the tournament's first match.

According to oddsmakers, Uruguay is a -179 favorite to win on the moneyline.

While initial reports feared the worst, Egyptian FA expressed confidence that Salah would be fit in time for the quadrennial extravaganza, bringing delight to football fans across the globe.


Edinson Cavani may have not scored against Egypt, but he leaves the World Cup game with a special memorabilia.

Instead, they chose the ideal time to find their form with plenty of help from a woeful Saudi Arabia side that now must face up to the firepower of Luis Suarez, Edison Cavani and Salah.

Apart from a couple of weak shots from winger Mahmoud Trezeguet and lone striker Marwan Mohsen, Egypt failed to carve out openings but held firm at the back. Can Egypt notch the big upset or is Uruguay going to roll to the win? Russia's game is fateful and hard because of our defeat against Uruguay.

It is hard to overstate Salah's importance to this Egypt side, and his likely availability for next week's pivotal meeting with Russian Federation will make a huge difference. Tabarez called it "secondary statistics". In 1970, Uruguay also reached the semifinals.

With three minutes remaining, Cavani pulled rank over his strike partner over a free kick on the edge of the area.

"During this period, all the players observed Ramadan", Cuper said.
