Ramos is a ‘beast’, Egyptians cry foul after defeat to Uruguay

Egypt were blunt without their star man, falling to a disappointing 1-0 defeat, with Jose Gimenez's injury-time header gifting victory to a below-par Uruguay side.

Egypt will be hoping for a victory in both games, particularly as Russian Federation managed to score five goals against a goalless Saudi Arabia in the opening match.

Salah suffered an injury in the Champions League final in late May, and his status for the World Cup was questionable heading into the tournament.

It may come as a worrying sign as Egypt turn to their next group game against hosts Russian Federation.

"Salah did not ask to play against Uruguay".

"We think we are cursed, we are cursed", said Tabarez, who insisted that he hopes Egyptian talisman Salah will be fit after three weeks out injured with a shoulder problem.

"I don't discuss individual players in press conferences".

"Mo Salah is an important player for us, that is without a doubt", Cuper said.




The more than 5,000 empty seats at the World Cup match between Uruguay and Egypt were due to no-shows of ticket holders, ruling body Federation Internationale de Football Association said on Saturday.

Just one match on the opening day of the 2018 World Cup left us feeling shortchanged, but three back-to-back games on Friday felt like the true start of the tournament.

Mahmoud Trezeguet has assured fans that he will be fit for the Russian Federation game after slightly limping during Egypt's loss to Uruguay.

If the area is still sensitive enough for Salah to feel pain when it's simply patted by a child, one wonders how he would possibly be able to compete with the best defenders in the world, who could well target his shoulder.

A statement from the Egyptian soccer association gave no details about his fitness except that the Liverpool striker participated fully in training Saturday in Grozny, the team's base in Russia's Chechnya region.

"Suarez is a real pest inside the box but I actually think you would see more of Salah on the ball in the match than Suarez".

He said he did not field the forward in order to avoid risks in their opening match.

"My players are down, but we can only blame ourselves", was all Morocco coach Herve Renard could say.
