Cavani reveals why he swapped shirts with Egypt's Salah after Uruguayan's win

After a goalless first half, Ahmed Fathi scored an own goal before Denis Cheryshev struck and Artem Dzyuba added a third.

Salah has been working his way back towards full fitness after having picked up a shoulder injury in the first half of the Champions League final against Real Madrid last month.

Salah started in Egypt's second World Cup clash with Russian Federation on Tuesday, the first time he has played since injuring his shoulder in the Champions League final with Liverpool.

The 23-year-old proved to be a handful against Uruguay and Russia's Brazil-born right back Mario Fernandes will need all his wits about him to keep Trezeguet quiet. Egyptian fans nearly outnumbered Russian supporters at the stadium, showing that they have taken the trouble to express their love for Salah as much as for the game.

Egypt head coach Hector Cuper said Mohamed Salah was "100 per cent" fit for the World Cup, but his absence in training ahead of the tournament due to injury was hard.

Video game addiction is now officially recognised as an illness
Addictive behavior around gaming can be treated with conselling or psychotherapy, including 12 step prgrams. Last week, the Mirror UK reported that a 9-year old girl was sent to rehab for video game addiction.


Cuper's team showed against Uruguay they will not defend as generously as the hapless Saudis, and Salah, who should make his first start, will relish the chance to torment Russia's aging defense.

"Egypt has, I don't want to say the fastest, but I have to say, one of the fastest players in the world", transcription courtesy of the Liverpool Echo.

The Pharaohs will now have to wait on the result of the clash between Uruguay and Saudi Arabia to determine their fate at the World Cup.

"If he was not injured, it is very hard to know what would have happened", Egypt coach Hector Cuper said. We are happy although we know that we have things to improve. "We are ready to stop Salah and we will". Egypt's last Group A match is against Saudi Arabia. He hardly reacted to Russia's opener, an own-goal. They can not sacrifice points against either if they hope to avoid joining South Africa as the only hosts to miss getting out of their group.
