Start Mohamed Salah or start he not? The question that all of Egypt, and by extension the rest of the world in the ban he got for the kick-off answer: Salah, who after a shoulder injury at the end of may will enjoy his return, planed, started on the bench. Eventually, the striker is not in action.

After a gelijkopgaand outset Uruguay midway through the first period the first great opportunity. Suarez should after a corner near the building, but was shot and hit the zijnet. The South Americans showed the most initiative, has already proved a challenge to the Egyptian defence out of context to play.

After the coffee, Uruguay faces a major opportunity, but the Egyptian goalkeeper El-Shenawy brought salvation to the knee. On the other side put Egypt once the nose at the window. Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Hassan had an icicle in thought, his cracked bulkhead, bumped, however, of meters far apart. Fathi did a moment later the better, but Moments kept his nets clean. At the start of the slotkwartier was there again Suarez. The Barcelona attacker broke off and wanted El-Shenawy dribbling – without success.

The time was ticking mercilessly away for Uruguay. Cavani took in the castle in a ball on the shoe, but El-Shenawy ranselde the leather out of his goal. The same Cavani came afterwards again close. His free kick and burst apart on the pole.

Finally broke Giménez (90.) in the slotminuut the ban: the defender nodded in a free kick from Sanchez against the ropes.
