There are some 15 year old City and United children celebrating a Uruguay win because Salah lost… He wasn’t even playing you weirdos. Imagine being that sad in your life😂

Egypt defended well for most of the match. This goal by @atletienglish’s Jose Maria Giménez clinched the win for Uruguay and all three points!

Jose Gimenez breaks Egyptian hearts with a late header while Salah stays on the bench. Overall, Egypt gave it all they could, but games can be defined with a single play. #Egypt #Uruguay #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/L8tK2FsIBG
