Egypt vs Uruguay Preview

This is one of the most eagerly awaited matches of the first round. It has been dominated by two of the football world's superstars Mo Salah and Luis Suarez. Much of the pre match hype has been around the shoulder injury Mo Salah suffered in the Champions League final but it looks increasingly like he will play tonight. However, even with Salah's presence I think Egypt are in for a very unhappy night. They are on a poor run of form and Uraguay are in a good run of form and are my dark horses to go a really long way in this tournament. The Uraguayan team has too much quality all over the park and all though they have a very young midfield, it is a midfield stuffed with industry and technical ability, at the back they have very capable, no-nonsense defenders in Godin and Jimenez and upfront they have the lively, clever Suarez and the clinical Cavani. If it wasn't for the Mo Salah factor nobody would give Egypt a chance.

Final score prediction : 1-4

Odds.   Egypt 6/1    Draw  27/10     Uraguay  8/15

Best bet    Over 2.5 goals  5/4
