Uruguayan defender Jose Gimenez scored in the 90th minute to break Egyptian hearts as Uruguay defeated Egypt 1-0.
The much-anticipated match between Uruguay and Egypt started on a disappointing note with Egyptian star Mo Salah starting on the bench.
For Uruguay, both their stars, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani were playing.
Suarez had an ordinary match by his standards as he missed plenty of one-on-one chances.
Uruguay’s other star, Edinson Cavani, played a great match as he tested the Egyptian goalkeeper on various occasions.
A disappointed Mohamed Salah looked on from the bench after Egypt conceded late in the second half. Egypt had already used their three substitutions and Salah could not do anything.
Egypt were solid in defence as they kept Luis Suarez quiet for the entire match. Although Egypt would be disappointed, but they will take plenty of positives from the game.
With Mo Salah expected to play the next match, Egyptians will still be hopeful of making it through to the next round.
