Sisi expresses his honour of Egypt’s performance against Uruguay
Egypt lost 1-0 to Uruguay in heartbreaking fashion as Jose Maria Gimenez scored a towering header in the dying minutes following a phenomenal defensive performance from both sides.
With this result, Uruguay occupied the second place on goal difference with Russia who had defeated Saudi Arabia with a humiliating 5-0 victory in the showpiece event’s opening game.
“Proud of the big performance from the national team and I am confident in their abilities in order to achieve the victory in their upcoming games,” El-Sisi said on his Twitter account.
فخور بالأداء الرجولى لأبناء المنتخب الوطنى وواثق فى قدراتهم على تحقيق الفوز فى المباريات القادمة .#ادعم_منتخب_مصر

Egypt’s next game is against the hosts Russia on Tuesday on the 19th of June, before facing off against Saudi Arabia on June 25.
