Mohamed Salah Benched For Trezeguet – Egypt vs Uruguay Confirmed Lineups

Egypt face Uruguay in their first 2018 World Cup game Group A game in Russia.

The big question as far as the Pharaohs are concerned has been answered. Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has made the squad but will be on the bench.

Trezeguet will 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, Amr Warda starts, 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 will 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.
