Egypt On The Brink, Lose To Russia Despite Salah Goal

Egypt On The Brink, Lose To Russia Despite Salah Goal

Mohamed Salah was on target for Egypt in his first game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia but failed the Pharaohs who fell to a 3-1 defeat against the hosts on Tuesday.

The result leaves Hector Cuper’s men on the brink of elimination from the competition.

Uruguay and Saudi Arabia will clash in the other group fixture on Wednesday.

Russia took the lead two minutes after the break from an own goal conceded by Egypt captain Ahmed Fathy.

Dennis Cheryshev doubled Russia’s lead in the 59th minute for his third goal of the competition.

The third goal arrived three minutes later with Artem Dzyuba firing a delightful effort home for his second goal of the competition.

Egypt were awarded a penalty in the 72nd minute after Salah was fouled inside  box with  VAR needed to confirm the foul took the place inside the box after the referee had initially called for a free-kick.

Salah duly stepped up and put ball into the net for his side’s only goal of the game.

    Anything can happen in the game of football. Egypt can still qualify for the round of 16 if Saudi Arabia defeats Uruguay and have 3 points while Uruguay remain  at 3 points also. Russia have 6 points after defeating Uruguay. This is the picture:

    *Russia 6 points 
    *Uruguay 3 points
    *Saudi Arabia 3 points
    *Egypt 3 points

    Egypt has been eliminated from d world cup,simple.wit two losses n minus 3 goals difference wat hope do they hv again.a pity d party for Egypt n indeed MO Salah he come to an end

  • Nigeria is also out because there is no way they can get 6pts. On paper maybe but not in rrality

  • @Samson, Laugh in swahili if you want. Saudi Arabia will thrash Uruguay meaning the group will look like this going into the last round:
    Russia: 6 points
    Uruguay:3 points
    Saudi A:3 points
    Egypt :0 points
    And then, in a remarkable turn of events, the spirits of the great Pharoes shall rise from their tomb: Nefatiti, Totenkamon, Ramesis the great, and path the red for Egypt and then rain of cats shall fall from the skies to plague Saudi Arabia in Egypt’s last group match.
    Fifa will then say: verily verily I say unto thee, let my people go to the knockout stages, with Egypt thrashing Saudi Arabia and results elsewhere going their way.
    And so it shall be written.
