    Uruguay are quietly very strong this year, they'll tear this group apart. Hopefully Salah makes it so Egypt can contend somewhat.

    Egypt got very good chance to qualify to knockout stage specially if Salah makes it. I'm sure Fifa will help Russia so much to get at least to knockout stage

    Hopefully Salah and Elneny are available for Egypt to at least have a fighting chance against Uruguay.

    Russians are tragic, tragic as England and Italy 2014, if they won one game I will cut my pinky finger. But they have money, referees and they are hosts so don't be so surprised if I cut my fingers especially when Mo is out

    Hope it's Egypt and Uruguay who make it out of this group. I dislike the Russian team and don't think Saudi can make it out, however, I could see them causing some problems.

    Would hate to see what the Russian hooligan ultras do if they get knocked out after FIFA helped obviously put them in probably the easiest group stage.

    I originally had Egypt and Uruguay to qualify here but having had a second look at the fixtures, I'm not so sure anymore. First game is crucial, if Uruguay wins Egypt and Russia win their match, it could be all or nothing in the second match, which sees Russia host Egypt. A win there and Russia are through. They have the home advance and thousands of crazy Russians supporting, but Egypt have Salah. It's going to be intense. At first I thought this group was kinda boring but right now, looking into it I couldn't really tell for certain who´ll qualify and who goes home.

    (I admit I don't know that much about the Saudi team , except they're hard workers so they could upset the upset even more)

    Smolov used to date that hot Russian ambassador for the WC. She almost ruined his career.
