Egypt vs Uruguay Probable Lineups: Trezeguet Could Start Ahead Of Mohamed Salah, Muslera Expected To Get The Nod

Mohamed Salah Liverpool Real Madrid

Egypt take on Uruguay in their first 2018 World Cup clash in Group A.

The big question as far as the Pharaohs are concerned is whether Mohamed Salah will be match fit.

Salah has returned to training but faces a race against time if he hopes to be match ready.

Should the Liverpool star not start, Trezeguet could fill in on the right flank with Salah on the bench.

The Kasimpasa star had a brilliant season in the Super Lig.

On the opposite flank, Ramadan Sobhi is likely to feature, with Abdallah El-Said starting in the No 10 role.

Egypt have Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny to call from in the middle alongside Tarek Hamed to form a defensive shield for the backline.

The defence is likely to be comprised of Ali Gabr, Ahmed Hegazi, Ahmed Fathy and Mohamed Abdel Shafy.

Another familiar face for Super Lig followers, Fernando Muslera is almost certain to start in goal for Uruguay.

The South Americans have a host of star names from defence through midfield to attack.

The stand out names up front are Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani but Bentancur in midfield and Godin in defence are also key players.
