Confirmed Line-Ups: 2018 FIFA World Cup Group A, Egypt v Uruguay

Posted: 15 June 2018 Time: 12:48

Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez start up top for Uruguay against an Egypt side without Mohamed Salah - here are the confirmed line-ups of the Group A fixture.

Despite Egypt manager Hector Cuper declaring Mohamed Salah fit and ready for their Group A opener, he's decided not to risk the PFA Player of the Year.

Al Ahly forward Marwan Mohsen has been preferred in the lone-striker role while a heavily experienced Uruguay squad has been selected by manager Oscar Tabarez.

Here is how both teams will line up:

Uruguay: Muslera, Varela, Giménez, Godin, Cáceres, Bentancur, Vecino, Nandez, De Arrascaeta, Cavani, Suárez.

Egypt: Elshenewy; Fathi, Gabr, Hegazi, Abdel Shafi; Hamed, Elneny; Trezeguet, Said, Warda; Mohsen
