Both Egypt and Uruguay are placed in Group A and they play each other on 15th June 2018 in the FIFA World Cup 2018. Both the teams are more or less equal since they did a good job in all their FIFA cups. So, this match becomes more of a tactical game, rather than a winning one. The Ekaterinburg Arena stadium is bursting with anticipation to see the outcome of the game.
Egypt proved their mettle in the qualification rounds led by their best player Mohamed Salah from Liverpool. He is the star striker that the team heavily relies on. The other stalwarts in the team include the goal keeper Essam El Hadary, who plays for Al Taawoun. At 45, he is probably the most experienced player in the entire tournament. He won the Africa cup of nations for 4 times but never played in the world cup. Ahmed Fathy playing for Al Ahly is a defender who 122 caps, One cannot afford to miss watching out for him. Mid fielder Shikabala (Mahmoud Abdel Razek Fadlallah) from Al Raed was recently called to the national team after a gap of 3 years. His performance could be entertaining.
For Uruguay, defender Luiz Suarez from Barcelona is the treasured played on whom hopes are pinned. He is the top goal scorer of the side, and this world cup could be his last one before he announces his retirement. Paris Saint Germain’s Edinson Cavani is a good attacker and so is Diego Godin from Atletico Madrid. These 3 are the star attractions and not to forget the young blood like attacking mid fielder Federico Valverde (Deportivo de La Coruna) and mid fielder Rodrigo Bentancur (Juventus). These players know how to entertain the crowd, and they are good at showing quality and holding their nerves under pressure.
The Pharaohs are a tough opponent to any team, but Uruguay is one of the best South American teams. If history is considered, Egypt conceded two goals in their previous game against Uruguay, and Uruguay stayed undefeated against Egypt. To start with, they seem to be the favorites in Group A. They are too strong in defense and predictions are not easy. The most important thing for both the teams is not to lose, so it seems that nobody would take a risk, and all would prefer to play safe.
