Mo Salah celebrates birthday at Egypt team hotel

FIFA World Cup: Uruguay star Suarez in final shot at World Cup redemption

During Friday's match, Uruguay snatched a late win over Egypt as Jose Gimenez headed in the only goal in the 89th minute.

The result leaves Russian Federation atop the group with three points after they routed Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Thursday.

Egypt next play Russian Federation in St Petersburg on Tuesday, giving Salah four more days to work on his fitness while Uruguay take on Saudi Arabia on Wednesday in Rostov.

Speculation over Salah's fitness had dominated the buildup, and Cuper was left second-guessing his decision not to involve his star player.

Ramos' rough tackle in the Champions League final caused Salah's injury, and more than 500,000 people signed an online petition calling for Federation Internationale de Football Association and UEFA to punish Ramos.

We can confirm that the official attendance for the match between Egypt and Uruguay in Ekaterinburg is 27,015.

The 26-year-old set the Premier League alight last season by scoring 32 goals in 36 appearances - one more than Suarez's scintillating last campaign for the Reds in 2013-2014.

Transcend Packaging in Wales, and Huhtamaki in Belfast, will supply the straws for all 1,361 McDonald's restaurants. Only 1% are recycled, largely because they are made of a mixture of polypropylene and polystyrene.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani had a couple of half-chances for Uruguay in the first half, the best made by himself when he juggled the ball and lashed it on the volley from outside the box, but it was deflected over.

'Yesterday we were quite certain that he would play.

They took him out the World Cup, kicked him out like a dog. "Perhaps if Mo had been on the pitch today the outcome could have been different, but we'll never know that".

Coach Hector Cuper had claimed just on Thursday that the winger was "almost 100 percent fit"; when the team list was released on Friday, however, Salah could only make the substitutes' bench.

Salah's final was cut short after a nasty landing following a tussle with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and doubt was immediately cast over his involvement in the World Cup. The Russia game is hard because of our defeat against Uruguay.

Cavani also underlined that he felt Uruguay were good value for the three points, despite needing a late victor from Jose Maria Gimenez.
