Jose Gimenez scores late to lift Uruguay over Egypt

2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Egypt lost 1-0 to Uruguay in their opening group game at the Ekeratinburg Arena on Friday.

The Egypt global was forced to sit out their World Cup opener after Jose Gimenez netted late victor from a corner to help Uruguay ease to a 1-0 win over the African side in Group A.

Egypt coach Hector Cuper was pondering what might have been on Saturday after opting to leave out forward Mohamed Salah for Friday's 1-0 loss to Uruguay at the World Cup.

Suarez was saved embarrassment by a late header from centre-back Jose Gimenez, earning Uruguay a victory in a World Cup opener for the first time.

Egypt will be hoping for a victory in both games, particularly as Russian Federation managed to score five goals against a goalless Saudi Arabia in the opening match.

Cavani also underlined that he felt Uruguay were good value for the three points, despite needing a late victor from Jose Maria Gimenez.

Luis Suarez has been slammed by football fans after the striker appeared to attempt to get Ahmed Hegazi sent off in the final minute of Uruguay's win over Egypt. In previous defeats, Egypt's national team and coach have often scrambled to respond to criticism.

Federal Reserve raises interest rates
The Fed is raising rates gradually to keep the economy in check as inflation creeps higher and the job market grows even tighter. Along with rising interest rate expectations. "The Fed is prepared to be quicker about pushing rates higher".

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez echoed his captain's views.

Bradley, who led the USA national team during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, narrowly missed out on guiding Egypt to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after winning 7-of-8 matches in the unforgiving CAF qualifying format.

"We'll see great players here and he can be the greatest player [of all] at this World Cup".

While more than half of his teammates hadn't been born yet, El-Hadary was just starting his career the last time Egypt qualified for a World Cup in 1990.

Egypt will face Russian Federation on Tuesday at 8 pm Cairo time. "We've broken the spell".

"During this period, all the players observed Ramadan", Cuper said.
