What the players are saying
Essam El-Hadary (Egypt): “I have dealt with three generations of players, each one of them was different. But this generation is just great. People go on about me being 45, but I feel I am like my teammates — like I am 20.”
Diego Godin (Uruguay): “Let’s see what happens with [Mohamed Salah’s] injury. I’ve never faced him but it is clear that he’s very fast and I can’t go up against him in an open game.”
He continued, “So, football is not just about running. There are other ways to defend against him. With help from teammates, reducing spaces, that kind of thing.”
Egypt: Mohamed El Shenawy; Ali Gabr, Ahmed Hegazy, Ahmed Fathi, Mohamed Abdel Shafi; Tarek Hamed, Mohamed Elneny, Mahmoud Trezeguet, Abdulla Said; Ramadhan Sobhi, Mohamed Salah.
Uruguay: Fernando Muslera; Guillermo Varela, Jose Maria Gimenez, Diego Godin, Martin Caceres; Nahitan Nandez, Matias Vecino, Rodrigo Bentancur, Giorgian De Arrascaeta; Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez.
