Twitter reacts to Uruguay's game-winning header in 89th minute

  • Mohamed Salah

He left the Champions League final in tears on May 26 after he was injured during a collision with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.

Salah can be seen going up the steps at the Ekaterinburg Arena to take his place on Egypt's bench.

If not - and it's most likely that Uruguay win - Egypt's match against Russian Federation will be enormous.

Following Russia's 5-0 win over group minnows Saudi Arabia in the tournament opener on Thursday, the two higher-ranked teams in the group will be hoping to lay down an early marker.

"Uruguay is a team that's always a threat on set pieces".

"That means Egypt goes into the next game knowing their chance to move out of the group is on the line", he added.

Suarez nearly propelled the Reds to the Premier League title in 2014 but his attempts to replicate that form at the World Cup ended in controversy after a biting incident involving Italy's Giorgio Chiellini. Strike partner Edinson Cavani released him in the first minute after the restart, but Mohamed El-Shenawy blocked his effort from a testing angle.


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.

The two soaring temporary seating sections at either end of the pitch appeared to be nearly completely full, with one dominated by Egyptian fans and the other by the Uruguayans.

It was not clear if he would come on as a substitute or whether Cuper would save him for the later group games against Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia. With a victory, Uruguay could reach the next stage with a game in hand against host Russian Federation on June 25.

The north Africans, contesting their first World Cup since 1990, were for the main part fairly comfortable in defence and Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny was a constant presence at the base of Egypt's midfield.

Uruguay were guilty of being overly pedestrian and pedestrian with their passing, though, while they were also hampered by a lack of natural width as Nahitan Nandes and Giorgian De Arrascaeta continually drifted infield.

Coach Oscar Tabarez says Suarez, 31, has learned from his past mistakes.

Spain open their World Cup campaign with what should be their toughest test in Group B. "It's not an excuse for the result of today's match".
