The South Americans won the game 1-0, despite being the poorer of the two sides, as Egypt were undone by their Achilles heel once again. They’d conceded from crosses on numerous occasions in qualifying and they did the exact same in the 89th minute as Jose Gimenez nodded home. In a tense, tight game, Salah was seen on the bench looking ready for action, but Cuper decided not to risk his star man, who is still recovering from the shoulder injury he picked up in the Champions League final. The fans in the stadium cheered whenever Salah was shown on the big screen but Egypt used up his three substitutions by the 82nd minute, and none of them were for him. The loss for Egypt means that they’ll likely need to defeat both Russia and Saudi Arabia in their next two games, so we should expect to see Salah involved for both.
