Uruguay beat Salah-less Egypt as Jose Gimenez scores in 89th minute

Egypt vs Uruguay Mohamed Salah Edinson Cavani

The World Cup Egypt vs Uruguay match will take place on Friday, June 15, 2018.

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.

Salah, one of the best players in the world this season, is crucial to Egypt's hopes of making it out of a weak-looking group also featuring hosts Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

But just when the Group A game seemed destined to end in a stalemate, defender Jose Gimenez rose above Egypt's back line to head home the victor and set up an intriguing match between Egypt and host Russian Federation next week.

At the other end, Uruguay strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani missed their chances.

Incredible footage of a Montevideo primary school celebrating Uruguay's victor over Egypt has emerged, and it reinforces just how much the World Cup means across the globe.

In attack, Egypt got the ball forward but struggled to create clear openings all match and only looked to stretch Uruguay on the counter when substitute Karbaha came on. "We want to have him ready for the next two matches".

Comcast outbids Disney with $65 billion offer for Fox assets
According to regulatory filings, an unnamed company, widely thought to be Comcast , previously made an offer for Fox. Disney wouldn't face the same issues because it isn't a television distributor as the way Comcast and AT&T are.

The deadlock was finally broken in the dying minutes, as central defender Jose Gimenez rose highest to power home a header to give the South Americans all three points and give them a strong foundation for progression.

But Cuper, who is credited for rebuilding an ailing side, is adamant his side would do better at the World Cup, playing down the significance of any unfavorable results in friendly matches.

Check out our brand new daily JOE World Cup Minipod with Dion Fanning and Paddy McKenna with added Mad Vlad Putin, Spanish managerial weeping and probably some football as well.

Uruguay had 57-percent possession and four shots on goal, but it's a game the team could have had in the bag earlier. We either die or we kill and the experience today will help us grow, but we can't make too much of it.

"If Mo Salah had been on the pitch, I'm sure Egypt would have benefitted". Salah will have an important role for us in the future matches.

"We wanted to avoid risks in this match [with Salah], but I think he will be fine for the next game [against Russia]".

"I don't know what happened but I will not speculate". This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.
