Uruguay 1 – 0 Egypt 

With the stars paraded by Uruguay and Egypt’s own superstar, Mohamed Salah, seated there on the bench injured, a lot of people gave Uruguay an upper hand, but it wasn’t. The match didn’t turn out to be what it is on papers. Egypt played very well. 

It was a tough game with Egypt managing to dominate the mid-field, but Uruguay superstars Cavani and Suarez attempted to cause them trouble. Egypt goalkeeper was the man of the man for saving Cavani shot which was going straight into the net.

However, Jose Gimenez header on the verge of 90 minutes gave Uruguay a 1-0 win over Egypt at the Yekaterinburg Arena.

Mohamed Salah was kept on the bench as Egypt frustrated Uruguay throughout nearly all of the contest.

Luis Suarez summed up Uruguay’s troubles with an off-colour performance, hitting the side netting in the first half before unsuccessfully attempting to win a penalty in the second.

Edison Cavani came closest to breaking the deadlock with a curling free-kick in the 87th minute that came back off the post before Gimenez rose highest to head home and secure the victory.
