Mohamed El-Shennawy named man of the match in Uruguay defeat

The FIFA World Cup 2018 kicked off with hosts Russian Federation dishing out a 5-0 beating on Saudi Arabia.

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez echoed his captain's views.

"I can nearly assure you 100 percent he'll play", Cuper said in the pre-match press conference.

Egyptian fans at the Moscow Fan Fest believe it would have been a different story altogether had Liverpool star Mohammed Salah featured in their Group "A" clash against Uruguay.

"A risk of playing a match is something we can't hide".

"I took Salah's shirt as a gift for my children, who also see him as a star", the Uruguayan said, speaking to reporters as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

Egypt's coach assured the media on Thursday that Salah was fully recovered from the injury he suffered in the Champions League final last month.

And ahead of Egypt's must-win clash with Russian Federation on Tuesday, the Egyptian Football Association have announced Salah is ready for Tuesday's game.

Salah was the Premier League's player of the season after scoring a league-leading 32 goals, with 44 in all competitions. What a wonderful game we played!

Egypt, which had zero corner kicks in the match, has yet to win a World Cup game.

Salah's final was cut short after a nasty landing following a tussle with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and doubt was immediately cast over his involvement in the World Cup.

But Suarez has continued to be key for his country and is back with a chance to redeem himself in a strong Uruguay side, still with the core of the squad that finished fourth in South Africa eight years ago.

With the Russia's strong goal differential as a result of that match, the Pharaohs may well need all three points to keep them in contention for the knock-out stage of the tournament. "In the history of football we have broken a spell (winning the opening game)", he added.
