  • FIFA World Cup: Uruguay star Suarez in final shot at World Cup redemption

The two soaring temporary seating sections at either end of the pitch appeared to be nearly completely full, with one dominated by Egyptian fans and the other by the Uruguayans.

The pair will be licking their lips at the prospect of getting stuck into the defence of a Saudi Arabian team thrashed 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation in the World Cup opener on Thursday.

"Sometimes the ball will go to the back of the net, sometimes it won't", Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez said.

The Pharaohs performed admirably in their first World Cup match in almost 30 years, especially considering that their star player, Mohamed Salah, failed to enter the game.

"Salah is decisive but our preparation does not depend on the status of one player", defender Godin added.

Egypt's coach Hector Cuper has explained that he opted to keep Mohammed Salah out Egypt's opening game against Uruguay to avoid risks.

Egypt's final game is against Saudi Arabia.

Amazon Scores U.K. Premier League Soccer Rights Deal
The rivalry between Sky and BT in recent years has resulted in huge price inflation of 70% at each of the past two auctions. The 20 additional matches will cost the telco £90m, bringing the total cost for 52 games to £975 million over three years.

Salah has failed to make the starting line-up in the match today, having recovered from a shoulder injury sustained in the Champions League final last month.

Liverpool FC signed Salah in a £39m deal from AS Roma last summer and the Egypt star scored 32 times to set a new Premier League record and win the PFA player of the year award.

"We'll see great players here and he can be the greatest player [of all] at this World Cup".

A video clip showed a cake coated in the colors of the Egyptian and Chechnya flags sitting on a table in the team's hotel lobby in the Chechen capital of Grozny, the Pharaohs' base.

Salah injured shoulder ligaments in the collision with Ramos in Kiev, which led to the Egypt global leaving the pitch in tears in the first half.

Despite the winless streak, a team coached by Tabarez has always made it out of the group stage, including a semifinal appearance in South Africa eight years ago. Uruguay also has three points while Egypt and Saudi Arabia have none.

In the history of football we have broken a spell.
