Three of Uruguay's last four victories have seen them win by more than a single goal margin as well, so we like the look of Uruguay -1.0 Asian Handicap here.
The fact that the Egyptian the whole match against Uruguay sat on the bench.
The main question that bothered fans around the globe will be able to help the team star African national team leader Liverpool Mohamed Salah, who trained, even at night, that they might recover from a shoulder injury received in the Kiev Champions League final. He swept nearly every individual award in the Premier League and took Liverpool to the Champions League Final.
Cuper will hope it is not a decision that becomes the story of Egypt's World Cup adventure, but Salah is nearly guaranteed to start in their second game with hosts Russian Federation.
Goalkeeper Essam El Hadary, who would be the oldest player to feature in a World Cup at 45-years-and-5-months-old, was also only named as an Egypt substitute and did not enter the fray. It managed two draws at the 1990 tournament and left empty handed in 1934.
He has 42 goals for Uruguay and poses a significant threat to the Egyptian defense.More news: Colombia's James Rodriguez will not start vs. Japan after calf injury

Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani give the two-time world champions exceptional firepower up front, having racked up 71 goals and 30 assists between them last season.
Apart from a couple of weak shots from winger Mahmoud Trezeguet and lone striker Marwan Mohsen, Egypt failed to carve out openings but held firm at the back.
Expected to dominate Group A, Uruguay made its first step toward the next round.

Most expect Uruguay to dominate this game in all aspects, including both corners and chances created, which should see them spend much of their time in Egypt's half.
But Jose Gimenez's late victor left him with egg on his face, and Egypt will probably have to beat the hosts Russian Federation on Tuesday to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.
