Saudi Arabia beats Egypt 2-1 at World Cup

Saudi Arabia beats Egypt 2-1 at World Cup

El Hadary overtook Faryd Mondragon as the oldest person to play at the World Cup.

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

At the fag end of the first half, a yellow card to Gabrin and Salman Al Faraj scored from a penalty to equalise.

Egypt goalkeeper Essam El Hadary, 45, is the oldest player ever to appear at a World Cup competition upon appearing in the team to face Saudi Arabia in Volgograd.

Saudi Arabia winger Salem Al-Dawsari scored a last-gasp victor as Mohamed Salah's Egypt suffered a 2-1 loss in their Group A dead rubber in Volgograd on Monday.

When Salah opened the scoring against Saudi Arabia, he chose not to celebrate.

Mohamed Salah had a brilliant outing but his lone fight was not enough for Egypt to get a win in the 2018 edition of football World Cup.

There have been suggestions that Salah will quit the Egypt team following the conclusion of the World Cup.

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.

Mohamed Salah's neatly-taken lob over the onrushing goalkeeper looked to have knocked the wind out of the Saudi sails, and they nearly conceded a second to the Liverpool forward immediately afterwards.

As goal keeper, Essam El Hadary is recorded the oldest goalkeeper.

Both sides returned to the pitch for the remainder of the game after observing the 15 minutes compulsory rest.

It was a unusual decision and did not go unnoticed by World Cup fans.

"We've been told over and over again we were too defensive but we qualified for the World Cup with the same approach, and for the first time in 28 years", he said. That changed in the 41st minute when the Asian side were awarded a penalty for Ahmed Fathy's handball.
