Salah to line out against hosts for Egypt

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

Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko told reporters after attending Sunday's training sessions that players knew the importance of Tuesday's showdown with the Pharaohs in Saint Petersburg.

"It is up to each one, " he said. But honestly he wouldn't be doing something haram if he just accepted the award, right?" while another defended the Muslim's goalkeeper choice, explaining: "I mean why does this bother you lot so much?

A close ally of President Vladimir Putin, Mutko oversaw preparations for the tournament at a cost of more than $13 billion.

He oversaw a budget of more than $13 billion (11.2 billion euros) while spearheading preparations for Russia's first World Cup at home.

"[Egypt's] match against Uruguay was very hard..."

The uninspired performance by Stanislav Cherchesov's side sparked concern they could crash out of the World Cup group stage without a win, as they did at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Elshenawy was not one of the better-known players entering the World Cup, and, in fact, there was some question before the game whether he or Egypt's other goalkeeper, Essam El-Hadary, would be in the lineup against Uruguay.

The Liverpool forward, who injured shoulder ligaments in the Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid last month, did not play in Egypt's 1-0 loss to Uruguay on Friday but is expected to return to face Russian Federation.

Mohamed El-Shenawy impressed with his excellent saves in the Egypt-Uruguay match.

The brief celebration took place upon the team's arrival back in their Grozny hotel after the flight from Yekaterinburg, where they played their opening match.

After the match, the 29-year-old was announced the best player of the game and handed the Man of the Match Award. "We will see what he is capable of showing against us".
