Following their 1-0 over , Uruguay’s José Giménez spoke about the last minute victory and how vital it is for them in the group.

In the dying minutes of the first World Cup game for Egypt, Gimenez rose above all the Pharaoh defenders and scored the only goal of the game to give Uruguay the three points.
