Whereas, Salah's absence in the first match turned out to be advantageous for Uruguay, who beat Egypt by 1-0.

Host nation Russian Federation will play African giants Egypt in their 2018 FIFA World Cup Group A clash on Tuesday night, and Mohamed Salah has returned for the Pharaohs!

Russia's 5-0 win against Saudi Arabia was the biggest victory by a host nation in an opening game since Italy beat the United States of America 7-1 in 1934.

The 26-year-old's birthday was ruined by the Uruguay defeat and he spent the match on the bench as Cuper elected not to risk his star man, who is making his return from a shoulder injury.

Ignashevich's experience is an asset but his age counts against him and any attempt to double up on Salah will free up Mahmoud Hassan, better known by his nickname "Trezeguet", on the opposite flank.

"Russian Federation midfielder Anton Miranchuk: "[It] looks like Salah will play against us because they need points.

The win gives the hosts six points from their opening two games and puts them in pole position to advance after outscoring their opponents 8-1 thus far in the tournament.

The Egyptian Football Federation (EFA) laid that decision exclusively at Cuper's door, maintaining the 26-year-old was fit to face Uruguay but deemed not ready for the risk.

Mohamed Salah rose to fame after a sensational season with Liverpool in the Premier League that ended with him winning the Golden Boot, among many awards.

On the other hand, Egypt's majority of goals were from cross balls, so Russia's weakness plays particularly well in Egypt's favor.

Against the Saudis, the hosts were fluent in attack but untested in defence, something Egypt superstar Mohamed Salah will be aware of.

The hosts started with impressive energy and youngster Aleksandr Golovin offered a warning sign for Egypt, taking up space on the edge of the box to whip a curling effort just wide of Mohamed El-Shenawy's goal.

The Pharaohs know anything but three points could send them packing before the final group fixture - while they are still desperately seeking a first World Cup win in what will be their sixth game at the finals. "Ready for tomorrow", "100 million strong", read the caption for the video he posted yesterday, which shows Salah talking to the camera saying, "You might think that all this pressure on me to score could be a pressure". Despite the subsequent handwringing, Cuper's decision not to play his talisman against Uruguay - Egypt's least-winnable game - was the percentage call in the circumstances.
