World Cup 2018 Predictions for Group A – Egypt

The upcoming 2018 World Cup is bound to prove a tournament of great prospect and excitement. Fans all over the globe can’t wait to sit back and watch on this summer, as several nations from across the world seek to test each other out in the most trialing fashion possible.

With that in mind, we’re taking a closer look at Egypt and everything those so-called Pharaohs can expect to achieve on the grand international scene. Can the buoyant North Africans successfully cause a stir? Or does a frustratingly early exit nonetheless await Hector Cuper’s side?


Will Egypt qualify from Group A?

The determined Egyptians will enter the 2018 World Cup fresh from just coming up short in the most recent African Cup of Nations. Egypt lost out narrowly to a disjointed Cameroonian outfit in the final despite representing arguably the strongest team across the entire tournament.

In Hector Cuper, Egypt play host to an experienced coach with plenty of ambition to see his adopted nation thrive among the 2018 World Cup in Russia. As his team include a series of standout names with an entire nation of passionate fans supporting their cause, Egypt could very well pip Russia to the post and successfully qualify from Group A this summer.


Who will be Egypt’s star man at the World Cup?

Egypt welcome a number of impressive names among their upcoming World Cup squad for Russia 2018. Mohamed Elneny and Ramadan Sobhi have plied their trade in England with both Arsenal and Stoke City respectively, whilst West Brom’s Ahmed Hegazi continuously draws praise for his most recent performances down at the Hawthorns.

Yet it will be Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah who will undoubtedly steal the show for his proud nation. The quick-footed front-man has torn the Premier League apart in his latest domestic endeavours, providing the English top-flight with one of its standout performers across the entire season thus far.

Salah may not prove an out-in-out game-changer on every given occasion at Russia 2018, but even with that in mind, his mere presence alone could be enough to inspire Egypt in their quest for World Cup recognition.

The former Chelsea, Fiorentina and Roma man has shown what he is all about in front of the Anfield faithful, and if he can somehow begin to replicate such fine performances on the international stage with Egypt this summer, Hector Cuper’s team could suddenly find themselves very well placed indeed.


What are Egypt’s World Cup Group A fixtures?

Russia – Russia will likely prove tough opposition for the Egyptians one way or another. Yet if Hector Cuper’s team can somehow stick to task, and allow their attacking talisman in Mohamed Salah to go about his business untroubled, the Pharaohs should begin to envisage this particular fixture as one they can wholeheartedly win. They certainly have enough about them to disrupt the host nation.

Saudi Arabia – Again, Egypt must also be looking to win their upcoming face-off with Saudi Arabia to stand any real chance of impressing their many die-hard onlookers over the summer. Cuper’s squad remain well placed to achieve such a task, and should look forward to this specific fixture with much confidence and belief in their abilities

Uruguay – Egypt may nonetheless struggle to see off Uruguay when all is said and done, arguably Group A’s favourite to succeed. The Pharaohs currently play host to a defensive back-line to be proud of, but it remains unlikely to hold out against the South Americans as Uruguay seek to topple their Group A opposition with the utmost ease and efficiency.


Egypt World Cup 2018 Predictions:

Whilst Egypt are unlikely to come out victorious against Uruguay this summer, they should certainly be aiming to beat Saudi Arabia with relatively little fuss, and must consider themselves more than capable of upsetting the Russians in their own back yard.

Relevant World Cup betting tips could even place Mohamed Salah as the all-round player of the tournament if his current domestic output is to prove anything to by. The ‘Egyptian Messi’ looks somewhat unstoppable right about now after all.

Egypt have the players, manager, fans and overall belief to cause a major upset or two this summer, something which adds far more certainty to their ultimate chances of qualifying from those often elusive group-stage fixtures. Hector Cuper’s team therefore remain one of the surprise contenders to excite among the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
