FIFA 2018 Match 3 – Egypt vs. Uruguay Match Preview: Salah being doubtful

The second match of the FIFA World Cup tournament will be played between Egypt and Uruguay. Two-time champion Uruguay will kick off their battle against Egypt. Both teams will face-to-face each other at Ekaterina Stadium in the second match of Group A. According to the previous records, Uruguay’s position seems heavy. Egypt has qualified for the World Cup after almost 28 years. When Egypt had made the place in this tournament, there was an atmosphere of happiness throughout the country, but before the World Cup, Egypt faces a big setback. His star player Mohammad Salah was got shoulder injury while playing with Liverpool in the UEFA Championship final. The situation is not clear right now whether he will play in the first match or not.

Uruguay did a fantastic performance in the last two World Cups. In 2010 World Cup, this South American country ended with fourth place. In 2014 Brazil WC, though the team was eliminated from the final-16. Uruguay’s team is more experienced in this World Cup than the previous one’s edition. However, the team is once again will depend on the star striker Luis Suarez and Edison Kawani. In absence of Salah, Coach Hector Copper has two good options in the form of Mahmud Tregguit and Ramadan Sobhi. Egypt’s coach is known for his defensive style, and in this match, Egypt could descend with this strategy.
