    yankee is astute in that take.

    The Saudis have qualified for four Men's World Cups prior to this one.

    In 1994, they actually made it out of the Group Stage In 1998 and 2006, they had mirror mirror performances of 1 draw, two losses, and a minus-5 goal differential. And, in 2002, they managed to lose all three games and rack up a Goal Differential of minus-12. All told, counting today's game, they have a lifetime record of 2 wins, 2 Draws, 10 losses, and a minus-28 goal differential.

    Is anyone else holding a sweepstake predicting the nationality of the first person killed?

    don't forget , they gave Miro Klose a nice start on the road to the goals record with a hat trick in an 8-0 drubbing in the first match in 2002.

    This game is made for Salah to come on & be the hero.

    Uruguay rather sluggish, Egypt playing well but lacking the quality in the final third.

    shambles watching the world cup in aus this year since the tv network sold games to a telco who wants you to watch by an app which of course crashes and makes the money you spend on it worthless

    as for the game uruguay will get out of the group but will get spanked in the next round

    Grant Wahl trying this best to offer up terrible takes and be a worse representation of US Soccer than Bruce Arena




    I'm embarrassed to be a Yank and a footie fan right now, Grant. Thanks. Both of these are worse than the general american sports guy who knows nothing about football saying "The US will win the World Cup when the next LeBron, Durant, and Trout play soccer". And that's a terrible take we have to listen to every four years. You jackass.

    After having seen Egypt- Uruguay I feel bad for Egypt. Not because of the loss, but that they are in the same group as Russia after Russia's win. Still Egypt can beat Saudi Arabia with a lot of goals as well, and then the group is open again. I really want Egypt and Uruguay to through.

    If Egypt beat Russia and Saudi Arabia, they will be fine.
