Egypt 0-1 Uruguay

Mohamed Salah

It wasn't close to Uruguay's best performance as a youthful midfield struggled to create, and Luis Suarez wasn't himself.

Cuper pointed out that Uruguay are "Not only about Cavani and Suarez. behind them is an entire team", and Salah would probably wish for a softer comeback than a battle with the Atletico Madrid twin towers, Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez.

Cuper said: "Mo Salah is an extremely important player for us, nobody can deny that, but you need to have a good team, and we have a good team".

Egypt now face an uphill task of getting out of the group and will most likely have to call on Salah for their next game against tournament hosts Russian Federation next Tuesday.

Salah, overcoming an injury suffered in Liverpool's Champions League final defeat three weeks ago, was among the available substitutes but did not enter the game. "We wanted to avoid any risks in this match, but I think he will be fine for the next game".

Egypt and Uruguay have met in just one previous match: a friendly in Alexandria in August 2006 which was won 2-0 by the South Americans.

What: Egypt will play Uruguay in a Group A game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. While he turns 26 on Friday, the event of far more importance is Egypt's Group A opener against Uruguay.

The first fixture of a World Cup is a big occasion for every player involved, and for the fans back home.

Disappointingly, we won't be forced to listen to "Robbie Williams's greatest hits, featuring Opera Lady" today and instead there will be no grand ceremony.

It would be a shame if the Premier League's best player and Ballon d'Or dark horse Salah can't go.

This will give Suarez and partner Cavani the chance to get off to a promising start. Uruguay is now second, also with three points.

Salah's World Cup dream was left on the brink when he exited the final in tears after Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos wrestled him to the ground.
