Saudis add to Salah's misery, beat Egypt 2-1 in farewell

Egypt's forward Mohamed Salah stands next to Egypt's midfielder Mahmoud'Kahraba Abdel Moneim and Egypt's goalkeeper Essam El Hadary during a training session at the Akhmat Arena stadium in Grozny

El-Hadary got the start as Egypt and Saudi Arabia played for bragging rights in Group A. With both Russian Federation and Uruguay sitting at six points, Egypt and Saudi Arabia were eliminated after their second games of the tournament.

Although he saved one penalty, he couldn't stop Saudi Arabia from winning 2-1 in a game between two teams that had already been eliminated. Egypt was the team who drew first blood as the Liverpool magician Mohamed Salah fooled the Saudi goalkeeper with a simple overhead tap.

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.

Mohamed Salah stylishly broke the deadlock in the match with his second strike of the tournament.

Salah could have had a second just two minutes later when he again beat the offside trap and went for a cheeky chip once more, only to send it wide on this occasion.

He surpasses the record of Colombia keeper Faryd Mondragon, who was 43 years and 3 days old in his final appearance at the 2014 World Cup.

The goal meant Egypt led a World Cup for the first time in its history and the advantage was preserved when Essam El Hadary saved Fahad Al Muwallad's penalty shortly before the end of the first half.

Nonetheless, Saudi Arabia gradually forced their way into the contest and had a flawless opportunity to equalise six minutes before the break when a Yaseer Al-Shahrani cross was handled by Ahmed Fathy inside the box. The decision was confirmed after a video review.

Al-Dawsari snatches a famous win for the Green Falcons.

The game appeared to be on its way to an uneventful conclusion but in the fifth minute of added-on time, Salem Al-Dawsari found the bottom corner from eight yards to give his nation their first win on the global stage since 1994.
