The second day of World Cup 2018 takes place today as Egypt face Uruguay in a Group A fixture at the Ekaterinburg Arena.
This is only Egypt’s third appearance at the World Cup and their first since 1990, when they failed to make it out of the group stage having faced England and the Republic of Ireland.
They sealed their place in this tournament when Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah scored a 95th-minute penalty to help beat Congo and finish top of their qualifying group.
In this match they face two-time winners and 2010 semi-finalists Uruguay, who are one of only eight teams to win the tournament since its inception in 1930, as well as being the smallest country in terms of population to have ever won the World Cup.
Oscar Tabarez’s side finished second behind Brazil in their qualifying group to reach their 13th finals and third in a row.
