Right, I'm off, thanks for joining us. We'll be back at 3pm with Morocco v Iran.

 

Desperately sad for Egypt who held on until the 90th minute.

90+6'
Uruguay

That's it, that's the whistle. Uruguay take the points - the first time they have done so in their World Cup opener since 1970.

90+6' 

Hegazi gets a yellow card from the ref for stamping on Suarez's foot, The Barcelona star goes down and looks like he reacts.

90+4' 
Egypt

Trezeguet appears to be injured, possibly just cramp, but he's limping.

90+2'

Five minutes stoppage time are now underway.

90' 
Uruguay

GOAL! Sanchez plays a free kick into the box where Giminez waits to head the ball straight into the goal. So sad for Egypt.

88' 
Uruguay

MISS! Cavani's free kick hits the post and that might have been their final chance to take the three points today.

87'
Uruguay

Vecino is replaced by Torreira as Uruguay prepare to take a dangerous looking free-kick,

85'
Egypt

There's been a substitution by the way, Warda has come off and has been replaced by Sobhi.

83' 
Uruguay

SHOT! Cracking save by Egypt's keeper as Suarez passes the ball to Cavani who makes a wonderful strike at the goal. El-Shenawy possibly having the best game today.

81' 
Egypt

SHOT! Elneny goes for the goal after a spell of pressure in the box by the Pharoahs. It sails over the bar, but he's smiling nonethless. An anxious 10minutes or so remains for Egypt.

80' 
Egypt

Nice ball by Egypt from the left wing to a more central position in front of the goal, but it's blocked by Uruguay's defence.

78' 
Uruguay

Terrible ball by Sanchez to Godin who runs down the right wing. Sanchez plays the ball forward and indeed well over the line. No where near good enough.

74' 
Uruguay

CHANCE! Suarez again runs into the box but he's just a little bit too slow and the keeper runs right at him to remove the threat. 17 minutes to go and we are still 0-0. you really feel Egypt deserve at least a point from this match.

72' 
Egypt

The Twittersphere poses a reasonable question...

67' 
Egypt

Egypt strike from outside the box and is blocked by the Uruguay defensive wall.

63'
Egypt

Egypt make a substitution, Moshen is replaced by Kahraba.

62' 
Uruguay

Suarez has been caught offside, which isn't unusual for him... he shakes his head.

59'
Uruguay

Nandez is off to be replaced by Sanchez, another change for Uruguay as de Arrascaeta comes off and Rodriguez comes on.

57' 
Uruguay

Uruguay certainly do look a bit tastier (see what I did there?) now, he's right. Much more pace in their game.

52' 

"Much more bite for Uruguay" says the pundit. BOOM! I think that's about the second or third chomping reference so far this game...

51' 
Egypt

I think I spoke too soon there, Hamed is back on the floor again and I think that might be him done for the day. He's limping off the pitch with Egypt's medical team. He's to be replaced by Wigan's Sam Morsy.

48' 

Hamed, who was on the floor at the close of the first half is up and running, albeit with the odd tumble as we've just seen.

46' 
Uruguay

SHOT! Suarez is keen to score for his country now and runs at the goal in the opening moments of the second half. A right-footed strike in the box meets with the keeper who runs out to block it. A good block it was too.

1' 
Uruguay

We're back kicking off the second half, and that's a phenomenal stat by the pundits - the Uruguay team has four strikers who've scored a combined total of 107 goal in their respective clubs last season.

45+1'
Egypt

Hamed is on the floor as the half-time whistle goes. He's been there for a while so let's see what happens after the break.

45+1' 
Uruguay

We've got one minute of added time and there might be some stern words in the Uruguay dressing room during the break.

44' 
Egypt

A couple of good opportunities for Egypt there as they get the ball into the penalty area. Two attempts on goal but neither makes it.

40' 
Egypt

Warda goes for an overhead and lands flat on his back. He stays down for a moment but then appears to be right as rain. He's baack up, and we are still 0-0 as we appraoch the end fo the first half.

37' 

A truly awful pass there by Godin, he runs with the ball but into the final third, just a terrible pass as he plays it forward, miles out.

36' 
Uruguay

A shot by Uruguay from way out on the far side of the box, it's dealt with by the keeper.

36' 

Bit of a flat match, so far. Uruguay don't look up to their usual selves and Egypt are actually doing pretty well, getting to the ball.

32' 
Uruguay

de Arrascaeta is fouled and it's a free-kick for Luis Suarez to take from outside the box. It's not a good one and meets with the wall, nasty winding there for the poor chap who caught that in the chest.

28' 
Uruguay

Inter Milan's Matias Vecino takes a shot from distance, close but no cigar.

 
Luis Suarez of Uruguay shoots wide
22' 
Uruguay

Cavani has another crack from just on the edge of the box but it's headed away, also. Suarez looks to have had a goal disallowed but in fact, it's not made it into the net, instead it shoots just down the side.

22' 
Uruguay

Uruguay manage to press forward and force a corner. IS this the breakthrough moment? Nope, it's headed away.

18' 
Egypt

Oh dear, try harder - a blatant dive just outside the box by the Egypt attack.

 
Amr Warda of Egypt is challenged by Martin Caceres of Uruguay
16' 
Egypt

Egypt pressing forward but it's not enough. Paraguay takes the goal kick for Egypt to steal possession back again.

11' 
Egypt

Egypt take a free kick from just inside Paraguay's half, and after a bit of indecision, Trezeguet takes a shot. There's not a lot behind it and poses little trouble for Paraguay's keeper.

8' 
Uruguay

SHOT! Cavani strikes and it's a test for the keeper, one he manahes to pass this time round. He may not be so lucky later.

4' 
Uruguay

Cavani seems to have been caught up in something and has hit the deck.

1'

We're off and Uruguay lose possession immediately to win it straight back.

12:57 
Uruguay

This is a banging national anthem Uruguay, in many ways, you've already won...

12:56 
Egypt

A lot of love and some spectacular headwear from the Egypt fans.

12:54 

Bit of a sad looking stadium there as we get underway with the national anthems...

12:47 
Uruguay

And here they are getting ready. Not long now... Phil Neville seems to have just backed Uruguay to win the tournament, so let's see about that...

12:41 
Uruguay

Suarez was banned for four months, missing the rest of the World Cup that year after having a little chomp on the shoulder of Giorgio Chiellini. Bit odd, right?

12:40 
Uruguay

And so the pre-match chat turns to Luis Suarez and his last World Cup, which you may remember didn't go so well

 
Egypt

It's Mo Salah's 26th birthday today apparently. Happy birthday indeed...

 
12:17 

And Uruguay go in hard with Suarez and Cavani up front.

12:16 

The big news there is clearly that Liverpool's ace striker Mo Salah is on the bench today, thanks to the injury he picked up in the Champions League final last month.

12:15
