Sisi expresses his honour of Egypt’s performance against Uruguay



president has offered his gratitude from the display the Egyptian national team delivered against Uruguay in the 2018 World Cup Group A.

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.

The Egyptian president had received the members of the Egypt squad travelling to Russia, along with the EFA members, before their departure in the presidential palace.

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.
