Mohamed Salah injury: Egypt reveal why Liverpool star missed Uruguay defeat

Mohamed Salah injury: Egypt reveal why Liverpool star missed Uruguay defeat

Despite being without star man Mohammed Salah, a determined Egypt side frustrated their South American opponents for long periods of the game.

Salah has been nursing a shoulder injury since his early exit from the Champions League final, the Liverpool forward having limped off following a clash with Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos.

"Salah has recovered and will play tomorrow". However, I can not confirm today that he will play in the first match.

"I'm very happy with the attitude of the team and how they played throughout". The doctors are giving him the options to play or not. In terms of him on the pitch, he'll have full guarantees. We'll see how it goes today.

Suarez fluffed his lines in front of goal, while the Paris Saint-Germain striker came agonizingly close, hitting the woodwork with a sublime free-kick. Uruguayans wanted the same thing, to win the match. He has 42 goals for Uruguay and poses a significant threat to the Egyptian defense. However, new Huddersfield signing Ramadan Sobhi is a replacement if needed.

Cavani added: "We won and that is what matters".

Uruguay are unbeaten against African opposition at the World Cup (W1 D2).

Egypt, competing in a first World Cup since 1990, also expected to have midfielder Tarek Hamed available following a back problem.

Egypt are so far winless at the World Cup, drawing two and losing two of their four games. It would appear, on paper, a straightforward victory for the two-time World Cup winners.

Tabarez praised his side's performance while calling on them to improve in their next game against Saudi Arabia.

This is Héctor Cúper's first World Cup as a manager. Now, they are going to need him more than ever with six points still up for grabs.

In the end their blushes were spared by Gimenez's superb late header, but Uruguay looked far from the finished article and could struggle against Russian Federation if they do not improve.

I have gone for Uruguay.

Egypt's Ahmed Fathi later tried his luck from distance before Suarez wasted another good chance after he finally linked up well with strike partner Cavani following fitful interaction.
