Egypt pay heavy price for errors and lack of Salah factor

Edinson Cavani sends message to Liverpool FC star

Going on the offense against the Russian goal, Egypt's Mohamed Salah was hauled down inside the box on the 71st minute of the match and the referee ordered a penalty shot, which the Egyptian striker flawlessly executed putting the score at 3-1.

Egypt will be knocked out if Uruguay avoid defeat against Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, with their seemingly imminent exit leading Cuper to come under immediate pressure.

Alexander Samedov pushed the ball out wide to Mario Fernandes, the Brazilian born right back who had powered forward from deep to deliver a ideal pull-back into the path of Denis Cheryshev who slotted home his third goal of the tournament.

Egypt's Argentine coach Hector Cuper said on Monday Salah was fit to play but would undergo a test before kick-off in Saint Petersburg. A strong run from Mohamed Abdel Shafy inside Russia's half was capped off with a good pass to Mohsen who left the ball for Mohamed Salah to receive.

Mohamed Salah, who was restored to the starting line-up, reduced the deficit from the spot 17 minutes from time, but Sbornaya were deserved winners in Saint Petersburg.

Egypt lost Tuesday for the second time of the tournament when it fell 3-1 to host Russian Federation. Meanwhile, Egypt is coming off a 1-0 loss to Uruguay after finishing atop its group in qualifying with a 4-1-1 record. It would take a mighty Saudi Arabia upset and a huge swing in goal difference to stop them advancing, and their involvement at least until the end of June lends the tournament a boost in terms of local interest.

"It is not an accident that we have two wins under our belt, we have a group of solidarity", said coach Stanislav Cherchesov.

Russia's Artem Dzyuba celebrates scoring their third goal with Aleksandr Samedov. I don't think majority expected, well certainly they didn't expect eight goals and two wins.

"We knew what to do against him and what we set as a target we managed to fulfil".

Grezegorz Krychowiak pulled back a goal in the 86th minute but Senegal help on for the win and opened the World Cup with a surprising victory just like they did in 2002.

"It is hard to say this but in the World Cup you have to wait until the very last minute, although it's true that our chances are minimal". Not to mention the 90 million Egyptians back home.

However, there is a caveat: Mo Salah will be subject to a late fitness test ahead of the game, and should he not pass that, he will not play any part.
