This is the first Russia FIFA World Cup 2018 trip for both national football teams and just the second game in the biggest and grandest sporting event on the planet, being the opening matchup on the second day of the tournament.

Much spotlight will be focused on the part played by the Liverpool professional footballer during the contest.

Egypt and Uruguay clash is a game that has been long-awaited by literally millions of Egyptian people. Egypt is looking to get a positive outcome, despite Salah suffering from shoulder injury. But head coach Hector Cuper has other alternatives in place such as Mahmoud Trezeguet and Ramadan Sobhi, who are can fill Salah’s shoes to a defensive style.

Meanwhile, the two-time World Cup champions Uruguay present a daunting opening hiccup for the Egypt team undertaking the responsibilities making an impact on their World Cup comeback. Le Celeste impressed at the last two World Cup tournaments, most notably concluding their 2010 campaign at fourth place. Though head coach Óscar Tabárez-led team exited at the Round of 16 at Brazil back in 2014. Most of those were side return, ensuring a key experienced core remain intact.
