In the opening match of Match Day 2 in the FIFA World Cup 2018, these two teams for Group A Uruguay and Egypt will clash with each other. After a great start by the Russians in the opening match of the World Cup would surely set the expectations bar higher for this game because both Uruguay and Egypt have their star power that can course the game in any direction they want.

The two times World Cup winner Uruguay won their last World Cup in 1950 and ever since they tried to  get better but failed terribly in the World Cup and may become a threat for the Egyptians who have been holding their heart in the palms just moments before it was announced that Mohammed Salah will play.
