Egypt manager Hector Cuper claimed that the Pharaohs will be looking to win their first World Cup game against Uruguay, saying he didn’t want the match against Colombia to end in a draw. 

Egypt escaped with a goalless draw against Colombia on Saturday, yet coach Cuper wasn’t satisfied with the result.

According to an interview with the manager with ON Sport satellite channel, the Argentinian declared he was eager to win against the Tricolors and will be hoping to defeat Uruguay in the first game of the World Cup.

“We are not satisfied with the result of the Colombia game, we were not trying to end the game in a draw,” Cuper said.

“We hope we can clinch the three points against Uruguay and not just one point.

“We are testing the level of the Egyptian team with these tough ties before the official matches of the World Cup,” he added.

Without key players Mohamed Salah and Mohamed Elneny, Egypt were struggling to create chances upfront against Colombia in the last friendly.

On Wednesday, Cuper’s troops will face Belgium in their last friendly match before the biggest football competition kicks off mid-June.

Egypt are in Group A and will face Uruguay in their first game on June 15. They will play against hosts Russia four days later and will end the group stage against Saudi Arabia on June 25.

    Very poorly written article. Several typing errors, and that includes spelling mistkes and very clear grammatical errors.

    At least proof-read, or have someone else review and edit before embarrassing yourselves and Egyptian media pages. Or have someone who is fully fluent in English.
