Egypt’s amazing performance in the group stage’s second match wasn’t enough; the Pharaohs lost 0-1 against Uruguay through a late José Giménez header in their first match.
Egypt impressed the majority of the game against Uruguay as the goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shenawy was crowned with the Man of the Match title.
Egypt stands in the third position in Group A with zero points. Uruguay now places second in Group A with three points behind the leader and the host nation, Russia, with three points but with five goals in their bank. Saudi Arabia is in the fourth position.
Salah turned 26 last Friday and the hotel’s management, where the Egyptian national team resides in Grozny, surprised the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah by celebrating his birthday.
