Uruguay’s Jose Maria Gimenez: Mohamed Salah is one of the best
Uruguay’s last friendly game before the World Cup ended in a 3-0 win against a 10-men Uzbekistan side. Jose Gimenez scored La Celeste’s third goal with 17 minutes to full-time.
“I feel good. I had played a lot of minutes specially at the end of the season and that’s always a plus for me, it gives me confidence. Physically I feel good, mentally I feel even better,” said Gimenez.
Mohamed Salah is still a doubt for the Pharaohs’ opening World Cup game against Uruguay, but the 25-year-old is set to feature against other group opponents Russia and Saudi Arabia respectively.
Gimenez however has revealed that he wants Salah to feature for Egypt against Uruguay, saying: “I hope he goes there, because he wants to play this World Cup. Personally I like to play against the best players of the world and Salah is one of the best, so I hope he goes.
“This is like every other cup we had played before. Of course we are going for the victory, but fear is a factor which plays a role there too,” he concluded.
