Day two of the 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off early on Friday, with the first full matchday. That begins with Egypt vs. Uruguay, which is kicking off at looks at notes 5 am PT?!

Yes, it’s true. Perhaps you want to catch some World Cup action before your morning commute, or maybe sleep is not a priority for you. Of course, DVR and replays on streams are a thing, too.

Egypt vs. Uruguay, of course, is the first game of the World Cup that will feature a Los Angeles Football Club player, Omar Gaber. The midfielder/defender has played in some of the tune-up friendly action, but he wasn’t a regular starter for Hector Cuper, so he may or may not get the nod on Friday. Of course, maybe he was being held in reserve for the big game.

This is likely the game of the group in Group A, as Egypt and Uruguay are largely favored to advance to the knockout stage. However, Russia posting a 5-0 win in the opening game on Thursday puts pressure on these two teams to pick up points early and often.

Should be an interesting game. Will Gaber play? How about Egyptian star Mo Salah? Will Luis Suarez freak out, or save it for a later game at the tournament?

How to Watch Egypt vs. Uruguay:

The match broadcast is scheduled start at 4:30 am PT. Kickoff will come around 5 am PT. You can watch the game on FS1, Telemundo, and streaming on Telemundo Deportes and Fox Sports Go in the United States.
