Egypt 0-1 Uruguay: Jose Gimenez scores 90th-minute winner



Jose Gimenez headed a 90th-minute winner as Uruguay beat Egypt 1-0 in their opening Group A game at the World Cup in Yekaterinburg.

 
The Atletico Madrid defender rose highest for Carlos Sanchez's free-kick to head past Mohamed El Shenawy and break Egypt hearts after a largely sluggish show from the Uruguayans.


Luis Suarez had missed three fine chances and Edinson Cavani hit the post as Egypt looked to have survived without their talisman Mo Salah, who did not feature from the bench due to his shoulder injury.
