Player ratings from game between Egypt and Uruguay
Check out how the players fared in game between Egypt and Uruguay
The man between the sticks was phenomenal for the Pharaohs as he did all he could to keep efforts from Suarez and Cavani out all game long. It was quite sad after pulling up 15 saves in this game it was the only shot that got passed him ended up being the winner
Ahmed Fathy – 8
The captain of the side was inspirational and did all he could to keep the Uruguayans at bay and also initiated attacks from deep right side of the Egyptian defense

Ahmed Hegazy - 6
Hegazy and Gabr were comfortable in their roles due to the great work done by the lateral defenders.

Amr Warda - 6
Warda in filling the shoes of Mohammed Salah was very huge to fill and probably did his best to his ability but was not good enough. He wacked in a few crosses but that could yield enough results

Hassan Trezeguet - 7
The dynamic winger did his bit and tried to also whip in crosses and tried a few shots at goal. He also did his best to as well dispossess his opponents
