The stage is set for two giants from Group A to collide with each other. Whether Mohammed Salah will be playing or not is still a mystery, as the coach Hector Cuper will only confirm the news on Friday.

Uruguay is a much stronger side on paper and definitely more experienced than the young line up of Egypt. Let's talk about possible clashes in the match.

Diego Godin vs Ramadan Sobhi

Diego Godin is a defence right back from Uruguay, currently playing for Atletico Madrid. This right back can be a big threat to fragile Egypt team, as he has played more than a hundred games for the national side. He has captained the side in three matches of the last edition of the world cup and Copa America 2015.

On the other hand, relatively new Stoke City forward Ramadan Sobh will be leading Pharoah’s attack in the absence of their star player Mohammed Salah. He was selected by coach Hector Cuper for 2017 African Cup of Nations. The youngster looks promising with 2 goals and an assist in 41 matches for Stoke City. Can Sobhi manage to score against Godin and Co is a question that needs follow up.

Luis Suarez vs Ahmed Hegazi

Luis Suarez is  Uruguay’s best bet. Barcelona’s striker already has five world cup goals to his name. He has scored 110 La Liga goals and always has been instrumental in Uruguay’s litmus test on big stages.

On the other hand, Suarez will be up against Ahmed Hegazi, who plays for West Bromwich Albion and has played38 games for the premier league side with 2 goals and 10 clean sheets. He is Egypt’s prominent defender with experience of playing 2017 African Cup of Nations. It will be interesting to see the battle between relatively calm Hegazi and adrenaline pumped Suarez.
