Uruguay is viewed by many as the favorite to win in the group and the favorite to win this match, but Egypt is a popular dark horse candidate in this competition and has a solid shot of making it out of the group stage just as long as Mohamed Salah is healthy., after being sidelined since the Champions League final with a shoulder injury.
Uruguay enters the match healthy and with the deadly duo in attack of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, but the pressure is on a young, new generation of midfielders to be the glue between the back line and the strikers. At the back, Diego Godin leads the way in central defense alongside his Atletico Madrid teammate Jose Gimenez.
For Egypt, all eyes are on Salah. He’s cleared to play, and it’s a massive boost to the team’s chances of making any noise. Is this the Salah we all saw at Liverpool this season? Keep an eye on his rhythm throughout the match, especially if he’s not at 100 percent. He’ll be needed to beat the talented South Americans.
