BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,16TH JUNE 2018-Uruguay have put up a spirited fight to beat Egypt 1-0 in Group B match played on Friday.

Both teams were equally strong    playing   almost the entire normal time without a goal.

It was not until the 87 minute that Uruguay  got a goal It was a late José Giménez header that actually worked Miracles for Uruguay .

Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani each passed up opportunities to clinch the points against a Pharaohs side who kept Mohamed Salah on the bench, but it was centre-back Gimenez who carried the day . After the excitement of Group A rivals Russia’s goal frenzy a day earlier, there was a serious lack of invention on show in Ekaterinburg.

Suarez missed two golden opportunities as goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shenawy excelled, before Cavani struck the post with a late free-kick, seemingly sealing a point for Egypt on their return to the finals.

Gimenez rose highest to meet a set-piece and bury a header past El-Shenawy, celebrating a fine end to a week in which he signed a new contract at Atletico Madrid.

The  next game for Egypt  will be against  Russia and this is definitely something to make the pharaohs remain under pressure.For  Uruguay  is is a big relief!
