Egypt and Uruguay will clash against each other in the second Group A game on Friday at the Central Stadium in Ekaterinburg, in what is arguably the group’s most exciting fixture.

It will be a battle between former Liverpool star Luis Suarez, now at Barcelona, and current Reds favourite Mohamed Salah who broke multiple scoring records in his debut season at Anfield this season, netting 44 goals in all competitions.

Uruguay are overwhelming favourites heading into the match but Egypt’s chances will be highly dependent on the fitness of Salah, who sustained a severe shoulder injury during Liverpool’s Champions League final when he was pinned down by Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.

While it was feared that Salah would be absent for a large portion of Egypt’s games, manager Hector Cuper confirmed that he would be fit to start the game amid injury concerns – a major boost for the Pharaohs.

Squads & Team News

Despite early fears that star forward Mohamed Salah would miss a great chunk of Egypt’s World Cup campaign due to his shoulder injury, it was confirmed that he would be fit in time to play in his side’s group stage opener against Uruguay.

Should Salah not play the full 90, however, Ramadan Sobhi would be an immediate replacement to feature for him on the wing. Goalkeeper Hadary is the oldest player to feature in this summer’s World Cup at 45 years, and could captain Egypt at the tournament for the first time.

Potential Egypt XI: El-Hadary, Fathi, Hegazi, Gabr, Shafy, Hamed, Elneny, Trezeguet, Said, Salah

Lucas Torreira, a transfer target for Arsenal his summer, could earn a start against Egypt. Ex-Barcelona left-back Martin Carceres is expected to start for Uruguay, along with stars Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani up front.

Potential Uruguay XI: Muslera; Caceres, Gimenez, Godin, Pereira; Bentancur, Torreira; Rodriguez, Arrascaeta, Suarez; Cavani

Egypt’s opening group game against Uruguay is their first appearance at a World Cup final in almost 30 years. Salah was responsible for securing his side’s spot in this summer’s tournament after scoring a penalty in stoppage time against Congo, earning him the status as his nation’s hero, and hopes of his country doing well in Russia rests heavily on his shoulders.

Uruguay are experienced competitors in the World Cup, featuring in their 14th edition compared to Egypt’s third, and are bolstered by the likes of world-class stars Cavani and Suarez. Cavani was the highest-scoring South American player in the qualification stages, scoring 10 goals.

The South American side will be boosted by their recent 3-0 international friendly win over Uzbekistan, while Egypt have failed to win an international fixture since October 2017 (when they beat Congo). Their last international fixture, against Belgium, saw them lose 3-0 (though were without the injured Salah).

“Salah is doing very well indeed, he’s recovered very quickly. We’ll see how it goes today. I can almost assure you 100 per cent he’ll play,” Egypt manager Cuper told reporters on Thursday morning.

“We’re trying to make him feel confident. The doctors are giving him the option to play or not. I know him very well, and I’m sure he’s not afraid.

“A risk of playing a match is something we can’t hide. In terms of him on the pitch, he’ll have full guarantees. If we do see at the last minute there’s an issue, we’ll see if it can be resolved.”
