Saudi Arabia vs Egypt tips

Saudi Arabia Uruguay World Cup 2018

Salem Al-Dawsari's late goal secured Saudi Arabia a first World Cup win in 24 years with a 2-1 victory over Egypt in Volgograd.

Ten minutes into the second half, Saudi Arabia almost took the lead as El-Hadary's clearance landed at the feet of Bahbri, who volleyed over the bar from 12-yards out.

The Green Falcons were, however, awarded another spot-kick in first-half injury-time when Al-Muwallad was adjudged to have been dragged down inside the area by Ali Gabr and, upon consultation with the Video Assistant Referee, the award stood.

Egypt goalkeeper Essam El Hadary, 45, is the oldest player ever to appear at a World Cup competition upon appearing in the team to face Saudi Arabia in Volgograd.

Saudi Arabia finished third in the group standings, scoring their only goals of the tournament and vastly improving from the 5-0 thrashing by hosts Russian Federation in their opening game.

Hector Cuper's side lost their first Group A matches, to Uruguay and Russian Federation, and their preparation for their final game was shrouded in mystery after Mohamed Salah's name was originally omitted from their starting lineup.

"Obviously every player wants to set a record", El-Hadary said before the match and the sick save.

Egypt took the lead in the 22nd minute as Mohamed Salah scored a delightful goal, his second of the tournament.




Mohamed Salah put Egypt ahead after breaking through on to a long ball forward and lobbing the goalkeeper.

Five minutes before the break, Saudi Arabia were awarded a penalty for a hand-ball in the box.

Yasser Al-Mosailem started in goal for Saudi Arabia, meaning all three of the squad's goalkeepers will have played one game in Russian Federation.

With the final kick of the game, Saudi Arabia snatched the winning goal, with Salem firing a low effort past El-Hadary from six-yards out.

Uruguay sealed top spot in World Cup Group A with a 3-0 win over 10-man Russian Federation at the Samara Arena this afternoon.

"It would not only be my achievement but also an achievement for Egypt".

But the Liverpool man should be backed to end the tournament on a high and follow on from his club form, putting Saudi Arabia to the sword.

This time, Salman Al-Faraj made no mistake, sending the 45-year-old the wrong way.
