Russia Crush Egypt's Knockout Hopes On Salah's Return

2018 World Cup Report: Russia v Egypt 19 June 2018

By SL International - Jun 19, 2018 09:57 PM

2018 World Cup 

Result: Russia 3-1 Egypt

Date: 19 June 2018

Venue: Krestovsky Stadium

Mohamed Salah's Egypt are on the brink of elimination at the 2018 World Cup after they suffered a 3-1 loss to hosts Russia at the Krestovsky Stadium.

The host nation started positively while the Egyptians looked shaky in the defence, which was evident by the misplaced passes in the opening five minutes.

The Pharaohs started to settle in the match only after a quarter of an hour, with Trézéguet coming close to opening the scoring with a curling strike that sailed inches wide.

Héctor Cúper’s charges had a good attacking spel after 35 minutes and were threatening the Russians’ goals, but they could not really get their dangerman Salah into the match.

The Liverpool ace eventually had his first chance to break the deadlock for the Egyptians four minutes before halftime after finding space just inside the box, but his bending strike missed just wide.

Two minutes into the second half, Russia got the breakthrough thanks to an own goal by Ahmed Fathy, who was unfortunate to see a low shot come off his knee and sail into his own net.

Denis Cheryshev extended Russia’s lead on the hour-mark after keeping his composure to drill home a low strike against the run of play. It was also his third goal of the campaign.

Artem Dzyuba made it 3-0 for the host nation three minutes later after superbly bringing down a cross with his chest before slotting into the bottom corner.

Salah pulled a goal back for Egypt in the 72nd minute with a powerful strike from the penalty spot after the Liverpool man was fouled inside the area following a review from the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

The Pharaohs were a constant threat going forward with 10 minutes left to play, although they were vulnerable to counter-attacks.

In the end, Russia managed to hold on and got their second win in Group A.

The Russians continue to occupy top spot in Group A with six points, three ahead of second-place Uruguay, who face Saudi Arabia tomorrow. Egypt find themselves in third spot with zero points and will be out if Uruguay collect a point on Wednesday.

I think so far the Russians has outdone themselves, that is a good confidence booster for all their games. I was on e of the peeps who underrated them. As for Egyptian it is a shame in a sense that they play their best soccer only in Africa. Come the AFCON you see them being the best team in Africa but they cannot match their European counterparts. As for Senegal, I have said before and I am still saying that they are a team to carry African hopes and flags high. Mane will be at his best in the next games. He will mature like wine the more you shelve it the more it becomes more matured. He is that type of player. Watch the space.

I don't know what's the big deal with Salah, one good season & now everybody thinks he has arrived & i can also see his attitude.......Just like in the ARMY same with football you earn your stripes & you must do what you did last season for the next 5 seasons in a row for some of us to even dare mention your name in the same sentence with #CR7 & the rest.
