Salah On Target As Egypt Lose Again

2018 World Cup Report: Saudi Arabia v Egypt 25 June 2018

By SL International - Jun 25, 2018 06:05 PM

2018 World Cup 

Result: Saudi Arabia 2-1 Egypt

Date: 25 June 2018

Venue: Volgograd Arena

Mohamed Salah was on target once again but was unable to help Egypt avoid three losses from three Group A games following the 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia on Monday.

Both sides came into the clash with nothing but pride to play for as Russia and Uruguay had already qualified from the group for the knockout stage.

There was a lively start to the encounter, with both nations signalling their intent to attack and get an early goal.

It was Egypt who broke the deadlock on 21 minutes as Salah latched onto a long ball before lobbing the on-rushing Yasser Al Mosailem to nestle the ball in the back of the net.

The Pharaohs carved out another opening as Salah turned provider to pick out Trezeguet, who sent a curling effort wide of the upright from close range.

Five minutes before the break, Saudi Arabia were awarded a penalty for a hand-ball in the box. Fahad Al Muwallad stepped up but saw his spot-kick saved by veteran goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary, the oldest player at the 2018 World Cup at 45 years and five months old.

Saudi Arabia were awarded a second penalty on the stroke of half-time, although there was a change in the penalty-taking duties as Salman Al Faraj took responsibility and scored.

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

El-Hadary came to Egypt's rescue on 68 minutes as the shot-stopper showed good reflexes to keep out Hussain's towering header.

The African nation continued to push for a second goal as the half went on, but they seemed to lack creativity in the final third.

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.
