“If [Salah] plays [against Uruguay], we will have to take precautions, because he is a player of the highest level. Either way, we will not change all our plans for that reason,” Tabárez mentioned after the morning training.

The training comes as  Uruguay prepare for their only friendly before the World Cup against Uzbekistan on June 7.

“[Egypt] are a National Team that competes well, they are organized, with a great manager [the Argentinean Héctor Cúper] that has clear ideas,” captain Godín added.

“Salah is a decisive player. We will prepare in the same way either way. However for Egypt, it changes if you have Salah or not,” the Atlético Madrid defender revealed.
