Salah to start on the bench


The Egyptian national team has been boosted by the recovery from injury of Mohamed Salah, even if he is to start the match against Uruguay on the substitute’s bench.

Egypt face a difficult opponent since Uruguay boast two world-renowned attackers, Paris Saint Germain’s Edinson Cavani and Barcelona’s Luis Suarez. Apart from the South American’s attacking strength, the team under Óscar Tabárez’s guidance also includes other experienced players, such as Fernando Muslera, Diego Godin, Martin Caceres and Matías Vecino.

This will be the second match from Group A after Russia’s 5-0 win over Saudi Arabia in the opening match of the tournament.
