Friday sees Egypt face Uruguay in Ekaterinburg.

Coach Joachim Low said goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who has not played a competitive match since fracturing a foot in September, will be his starter in Russian Federation.

However, the "Egyptian King" has recently indicating just how well his recovery is going after an overzealous fan got a little too close to him upon Egypt's arrival in Russian Federation on Sunday.
