A Mistake was done by Kevin De Bruyne and utilized by  Mohamed Salah and confirming goals for Egypt, who slightly missed out on World Cup Qualification in March, as they registered to win in a stop-start affair in Kuwait.

De Bruyne loses possession of the ball, and Mostafa Mohamed scores with a rasping short ball after the Belgian had lost possession just outside his own penalty area to give Egypt a half-time lead.

Belgium's defense was caught napping by the quick feet of Mohamed Salah and the creativity of Mahmoud Trezeguet. The Egyptian winger played a smart pass over the top of the defense, allowing Trezeguet to finish off with his left foot on the counter-attack.

With 14 minutes to play, Lois Openda pulled back a goal with Yannick Carrasco's assist. Four minutes later, the game was still level at 1-1.

Egypt held out for the win, but in the end, Salah's goal was not enough to secure them a victory.

As we know Belgium was second in the list of FIFA rankings and the semi-finalist in the previous world cup. The team struggled to make a number of switches, with Eden Hazard looking out of sorts.

Jan Vertonghen came on for the final 20 minutes of the match. He had been an injury concern over recent weeks but was able to get in some game minutes.

Pre world cup warm-up matches ended on Friday. The World Cup is finally here! And the first group game of the tournament is set for Wednesday night—Belgium vs Canada.
