The Brilliant Reason Edinson Cavani Wanted Mohamed Salah’s Shirt

FIFA World Cup: Uruguay star Suarez in final shot at World Cup redemption

Jose Gimenez was the unlikely 89th-minute match victor as Uruguay defeated an Egypt side shorn of star man Mohamed Salah 1-0 in their World Cup opener on Friday.

"So we decided not to take that risk because we want to be sure we have him in top form in our match against Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia".

Mohamed Salah watched Egypt's World Cup opener from the bench.

"Salah is decisive but our preparation does not depend on the status of one player", defender Godin added. However, he was missing from the starting 11 named on the team's official Twitter account, which showed Marwan Mohsen leading the attack.

Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shenawy had produced two fine saves to stop Luis Suarez and another from Edinson Cavani before he was beaten by Gimenez, but he was still optimistic of their chances in the group.

The La Celeste won their opening encounter against Egypt 1-0 to square off their campaign on a winning note.

Egypt manager Hector Cuper assured supporters that they would see Salah in action but there's no doubt that the 26-year-old remains massively uncomfortable with his left shoulder. I don't think anyone has bad will or tries to deliberately injure a player.

Cuper said that he had no complaint about his team's performance as they have done their best, but admitted that if Salah had been on the pitch, the outcome "might have been different". The work we do all the time is precisely to make our players understand that they have to work harder.

His struggles in front of goal mirrored his terrible start to last season with Barcelona after rushing back from a knee injury and Tabarez suggested Suarez was lacking confidence.

"Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, he said: "[I'd rather have] Salah in my team. "It is not a sin", Tabarez told a news conference. The Russia game is hard because of our defeat against Uruguay.
