Gimenez' late goal wins it for Uruguay

When is the World Cup Egypt vs Uruguay match?

Jimenez rose higher than the Egyptian defence to head in Carlos Sanchez's freekick from the right into the net from seven yards.

Salah, overcoming an injury suffered in Liverpool's Champions League final defeat three weeks ago, was among the available substitutes but did not enter the game.

The build-up to this game has been dominated by the fitness of Salah.

José Giménez's 89th minute header broke Egyptian hearts in the final minutes.

Kim vowed to work for denuclearization, and Trump promised security guarantees for the North at the Singapore summit. Japan has recently offered to cover the initial costs of IAEA inspections if North Korea agrees to resume them.

Was Cuper's plan always to save Salah for Tuesday's contest against Russian Federation in St. Petersburg?

With Uruguay the outright favourites to take the top honours in Group A, attention will probably turn to the second spot. After all the excitement of Thursday, and the overblown response to one line from Héctor Cúper in a press conference that was replete with equivocation, Mohammed Salah did not start. If he wasn't even able to made a cameo off the bench on his 26th birthday, how effective can Salah realistically be against a Russian side that will no doubt body him up at every opportunity.

"We played a good game, we gambled on whether they left us some spaces to take advantage of", noted Cuper. Either way, it's hard to see him being anywhere near his best.

Egypt, which had zero corner kicks in the match, has yet to win a World Cup game.

Egypt continued their tactically sound display in the second half, allowing Uruguay hardly any chances, but Suarez again came close in the 73rd minute, with El-Shenawy taking the ball off his feet as he tried to round the goalkeeper. There was no doubting his quality, though.

Mark Stoops says redshirt rule change is ‘win-win’ for all
The NCAA says that part of the rule change was to relieve pressure from starters that feel obliged to play through injuries. The new rules make it so schools the transferring student never thought about can reach out to him and recruit him.

Displaying incredible reflex saves throughout, the 29-year-old from Al Ahly man looked unbeatable against the world-class attacking duo of Suarez and Cavani.

Importantly, this will be the third consecutive World Cup appearance for Uruguay's star players like Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Diego Godin.

Uruguay face Saudi Arabia in their next clash on Wednesday, wherein victory will effectively seal their place in the last 16.

Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia are the two other teams in Group A.

Let's be real: there's a very strong chance you're only on this page to see if Salah is in the starting lineup. With a point seemingly in the bag he'd been all smiles just minutes before.

US Federal Reserve raises interest rates
Borrowers are likely to see higher bills next month on credit cards and mortgages, especially those with adjustable rates. The Federal Reserve expects the US gross domestic product to grow by 2.8% in 2018, up from March's forecast of 2.7%.

Although Egypt have become largely solid at the back, their central defensive duo are still finding it hard to deal with the numerous crosses that are sent to their area in every single game, with the full backs barely closing down spaces down the flanks.
