Central Stadium (Yekaterinburg)
The second match of Group A will see Egypt and Uruguay go head to head at the Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg.
The Egyptians approach this game on the back of six consecutive games without a win. They suffered a (3-0) defeat against Belgium at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brusel last week.
The Sky Blue’s on the other hand enjoyed a (3-0) win against Uzbekistan in their last outing.
Players to Watch
Mo Salah is unlikely to feature in this game following the shoulder injury he sustained in the final of the UEFA Champions League against Real Madrid.
If he does start or play some part of the game, he will definitely be a boost for the The Pharaohs.
PSG’s Edinson Cavani and Barcelona’s Luis Suarez will be joining forces in attack for Uruguay. While Atletico Madrid’s Deigo Godin will be at the heart of defense for the La Celeste.
