Egypt distressed display finish last Group A: Fifa World Cup 2018 A low drive into the base corner from a tight point by Salem Al Dawsari wins the counterpart for Saudi Arabia and on the adjust of play they likely merit it. Mo Salah gave Egypt a first-half lead with a superb complete before Saudi Arabia balanced with an argumentative penalty just before half-time.
Egypt and Saudi Arabia were playing just for pride at the Volgograd field, yet neither one of the sides could be especially pleased with their execution.
Egypt needed to minutes to recall – an excellent Salah goal and a splendid Essam El Hadary penalty spare, yet they couldn't discover a victor.
At the point when the opening goal came, on 22 minutes, it must be Salah. A long ball over the best by Abdallah El Said split the resistance and was smoothly brought around the Liverpoool frontman, who at that point deftly lifted it over the approaching Saudi Arabian goalkeeper Yasser Al Mosailem.
At that point, in the 38th moment, a Fathy handball implied that Saudi Arabia had a penalty, and Egypt's 45-year-old goalkeeper Essam El Hadary had the opportunity to be a legend. Also, he took it. The most established player to play in a World Cup spared a penalty.
If no one but Egypt could have finished the game there.
Only five minutes after the fact, and after a long take a gander at the VAR screens Saudi Arabia were given another penalty. This time Faraj made the net lump from the spot and the scores were levelled.
The two sides had their odds in the second half, yet nor was sufficiently clinical.
It took 71 minutes for the Mexican waves to begin, and remarkably, the fans did well to keep going that long. The game, albeit high on chances was low on quality. "I figure you can perceive any reason why these groups are going home," said Iain Dowie, on ITV, and he was correct.
