Confirmed Line-Ups: Egypt v Uruguay

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
