Giminez heads Uruguay past Salah-less Egypt

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool forward Salah recovered from the shoulder injury he sustained in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid just in time to be named to the roster for Egypt, with the attacker believing he would ready for the opener. Egypt's manager, Héctor Cúper believes that he will be fit for his country's opening game.

This match will likely prove to be decisive in terms of which team wins the group if one team manages to pick up three points here, but it could be a close contest. We think it's unlikely that Salah will be risked in a game they are likely to lose anyway, especially when coming up against the mean defence of Godin and Gimenez.

Luis Suarez - This guy needs no introduction.

Disappointingly, we won't be forced to listen to "Robbie Williams's greatest hits, featuring Opera Lady" today and instead there will be no grand ceremony. The doctors are giving him the options to play or not.

"I know him very well, and I'm sure he's not afraid".

Kaitlyn Strom was attending the Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, near Minneapolis, and having fun with friends. One person she said was surprisingly kind was Tom Wold of Darwin, the owner of the truck.

Cavani and Suarez didn't receive the support they needed and at times had to return to the middle of the field as playmakers, not a role for a duo which has combined for 93 global goals.

'And if it does turn out there's an issue at the last minute we'll consider it and see if it can be resolved'. The work we do all the time is precisely to make our players understand that they have to work harder. At the end of the training session, he was examined by the doctors and there was some doubt. As long as he gives his all, we are happy. The Africans had been without injured key striker Mohamed Salah but defended resolutely.

"Cuper is a very good coach, enjoys a lot of prestige and was chosen by UEFA as the best coach of the year in 2000".

Nov 2015 Still, without Suarez, Uruguay are ruthless in their use of set-pieces and with quick, direct attacks they chalk up a comfortable 3-0 win at home to continental champions Chile.

Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani each passed up opportunities to clinch the points against a Pharaohs side who kept Mohamed Salah on the bench, but it was centre-back Gimenez who proved the hero.
