A large number of Egyptian fans، living in Russia and abroad، started arriving in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg، in which Egypt-Uruguay’s match will be held on Friday in the 2018 World Cup.

At the same time، a number of Uruguayan fans arrived at Yekaterinburg airport and train station، where they posed for photographs with Egyptian fans and cheered chants to support their national teams.

It is expected that 7،000 to 10،000 Egyptian fans will attend the Friday’s match at the 35،000-seat Yekaterinburg Arena stadium.

Egypt will kick off their World Cup campaign 15 June against Uruguay and then face hosts Russia on 19 June. Their final group-stage match will be against Saudi Arabia on 25 June.

Egypt's pre-World Cup form has been a cause of concern for many supporters after they failed to win any of their five friendly matches.
