CAIRO – 15 June 2018: Goalless at the break and Egypt will be the happier of the two sides. Neither side has been better but Uruguay in particular have struggled to get their strikers involved in the game. Suarez had the best opportunity of the half but wasted the opportunity. Do you think Salah will take part in the second half?

24': Thanks God! Suarez missed a massive chance for Uruguay
28': It's clear that Uruguay depends on the counter attack tactics; they are waiting for it.
32' A chance for Uruguay from a free-kick quite a way from goal and Suarez smashes his attempt into Trezeguet in the wall.
38' A surging run forward from the back by Godin sees the defender ease past Elneny and he feeds a pass through to De Arrascaeta, whose touch is poor and the ball trickles behind for a goal kick.
