Egypt loses for Uruguay in last minute of its first World Cup match



Uruguay’s national football team won its first match in the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 in the last minute against Egypt on Friday.

Defender Jose Gimenez scored a goal in the 89th minute of the match for Uruguay.

Russia and Uruguay come at the top of Group A as both garnered three points so far while Egypt and Saudi Arabia have none.

Egypt’s star Mohamed Salah did not participate in the match on Friday because of a shoulder injury while playing for Liverpool in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Egypt will face Russia on Tuesday at 8 pm Cairo time.
