Livescore: Result of Egypt vs Uruguay

Livescore: Result of Egypt vs Uruguay

Salah was a serious doubt for the beginning of the tournament after he sustained a shoulder injury in Liverpool's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

The Pharaohs star man dragged his side through qualifying with five goals and will be key to their tournament hopes despite head coach Hector Cuper playing down the importance of the forward, saying "our tactics don't exclusively revolve around him".

Despite Egypt manager Hector Cuper declaring Mohamed Salah fit and ready for their Group A opener, he's decided not to risk the PFA Player of the Year. We'll see how it goes today.

Egypt are desperate to find the net on their first World Cup appearance since 1990 to silence a former player who continues to brag about the only goal the team scored 28 years ago. We also don't expect Salah, Egypt's chief goal threat, to start or score in this game. All matches in the world are full of surprises, especially at the World Cup.

Uruguay head into the game with the focus on stars such as Luiz Suarez but with their World Cup hopes equally resting with veteran coach Oscar Tabarez, who is battling chronic illness.

On his arrival at Moscow International Airport, the Crown Prince signed an autograph on a football given by the World Cup Mascot. However, the North American bid also faced issues in the run-up to the voting.

Uruguay XI: Fernando Muslera; Guillermo Varela, Jose Gimenez, Diego Godin, Martin Caceres; Nahitan Nandez, Rodrigo Bentancur, Matias Vecino, Giorgian de Arrascaeta; Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez.

This is by far the toughest test of the group for Egypt, so the best course would be to survive with a healthy squad and respectable differential and prepare for Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia. While the first made him miss the semi-final against Netherlands, the second resulted in a nine-match ban - the longest in FIFA World Cup history.

As for Egypt, so much hinges on the form and fitness of Mohamed Salah, after his race against time to be fit for the tournament following his injury playing for Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid.

"We're trying to make him feel confident".

In the United Kingdom (UK), the game can be watched live on BBC One or streamed live online using BBC iPlayer.
