Mohamed Salah declared fit for Egypt opener

Mohamed Salah sits among the Egypt substitutes

On the other side, Uruguay boasts a pair of attacking superstars in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

Egypt looked on its way to a 0-0 draw with Uruguay on Friday to open up its World Cup campaign, with Mohamed Salah spending the entire match on the bench. Both Uruguay and Egypt will be more than desperate to kick off Group A in affirmative and passionate manner, following the opening showdown between host country Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia. For 89 minutes at Ekaterinburg Arena, the Pharaohs, with the help of a few big missed chances by Luis Suarez, kept Uruguay off the scoresheet.

Egypt supporters were equally boisterous in cheering their striker Mohamed Salah when he walked onto the field. The doctors are giving him the options to play or not.

The result, combined with Russia'a 5-0 win over Saudi Arabia yesterday, means that Egypt are third in the group after one game played.

Meanwhile, the two-time World Cup champions Uruguay present a daunting opening hiccup for the Egypt team undertaking the responsibilities making an impact on their World Cup comeback.

Godin is undoubtedly one of Uruguay's key players heading into the tournament considering his experience as well as leadership qualities.

How is Uruguay looking at the Salah threat?

Egypt: Mohamed El Shenawy; Ali Gabr, Ahmed Hegazy, Ahmed Fathi, Mohamed Abdel Shafi; Tarek Hamed, Mohamed El Neny, Mahmoud Trezeguet, Abdulla Said; Ramadhan Sobhi, Marwan Mohsen.

Salah has not been named in the starting line up but coach Hector Cuper has already reassured the fans that his plans go well and beyond one of the best players in the world.

And while Cuper acknowledged that the lack of a clinical touch in the final third cost Egypt, he preferred not play Salah - despite earlier suggesting he would - in order to ensure he will be available for the coming matches against Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

"There's a good degree of progress but no definitive decision on whether he takes part, as we are following his case day by day", team director Ihab Lahita told reporters. A probability of an Egypt win will increase if Salah plays, but even then a Uruguayan defeat will be nothing short of an upset.
