Jose Gimenez scores late to lift Uruguay over Egypt

Uruguay snatched a late victory against a resilient Egyptian side, as defender Jose Gimenez headed in a victor at the death.

Egypt faces host Russian Federation in St. Petersburg on Tuesday, and then take on Saudi Arabia on June 25 in the team's final group stage match.

"That is a very inopportune question", Godin responded, evidently irritated by the implication that Uruguay might attempt to inflict the sort of injury on Egypt's talisman that had materialised from the Ramos clash.

LOS ANGELES-Along with other football loving Angelenos across the Southland, LAFC head coach Bob Bradley woke up just before 5 a.m. PT on Friday to watch Egypt face Uruguay in both teams' opening 2018 FIFA World Cup match.

Salah scored 44 goals in his debut Liverpool season after signing from Italian side Roma for £34.3m.

Suarez, who appears to have a better temperament as he ages, has been similarly prolific for Uruguay and forms along with Paris Saint Germain's Edinson Cavani one of the most potent attacking duos at the World Cup.

Suarez hit the side netting in the first half and twice failed to beat Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shenawy from close range in the second.

Salah, 25, was an unused substitute in his country's 1-0 defeat by Uruguay in their opening group game on Thursday when he was also declared fit. "Yesterday we were quite certain during that training session he would play".

"Salah will have an important role for us in the future matches".

The next test of Ekaterinburg's enthusiasm for World Cup football will come on Thursday when France meet Peru, who are one of the best-supported teams at Russian Federation 2018.

"Perhaps if Mo had been on the pitch, the outcome would have been different but we can't know that", Cuper told reporters.

Uruguay face the Saudis next Wednesday and Russian Federation on June 25 in their final Group A game.

Mohamed Salah is set to feature in Egypt's second World Cup game against hosts Russian Federation on Tuesday. Tabarez called it "secondary statistics".

Ironically, the repressive regime in Iran discriminates against women every day, including not allowing them inside sporting venues since the 1979 revolution. That was followed by appearances in 2010 and 2014.

"This is football, in our history of football", Tabarez said. Cuper didn't use it as an excuse. "During the preparations (for the World Cup), we did everything possible to deal with the fasting. It's not an excuse for the result of today's match".
