With Mo Salah in the base looked at the Egyptians after an hour’s play at a 3-0 disadvantage. The penaltydoelpunt of Salah was only for the statistics, Russia won with 3-1. The host country stands as one and a half leg in the next round. If Saudi Arabia tomorrow, not wins of Uruguay, it is also mathematically certain.
In the 0-1 lost match against Uruguay, he came not from the bank, but against Russia earlier, Egypt called on hero Mo Salah. The Player of the Year in the Premier League was now 100% fit and had his team in tow. Russia was, however, the best to the party and threatened with long shots of Golovin and Good. Egypt recovered slowly the balance, a curled shot from Trezeguet went just beside the goal of Akinfeev. Salah was invisible, but was in the final stage of the first half still to notice. Like Trezeguet, he tried it from a distance, his attempt missed but just aim.
The hope grew in Egypt, but already after two minutes in the second half it got a cold shower. Goalkeeper El Shenawy bokste a cross into the feet of Golovin. Who missed his shot, but with a more awkward tackle worked Fathy the ball with the knee in his own goal: 1-0. Russia, with a blessing on roses, but it gave the host country a lot of confidence. Russia went to attack and smoke and blood, Egypt was apparently upset and had to reverse.
With the hour in view doubled, Russia was not undeserved advantage. Fernandes took on the right to the dead ball line, turned past his opponent and found Good. The left had imposed’t have a chance, and pushed back the leather under the El Shenawy and put the 2-0 on the board.
Egypt was the north now entirely lost, and was run over. Just a few minutes after the second tegengoal, it was already 3-0. Dzyuba controlled a high pass with the chest, put Gabr in the wind and did the nets behind El Shenawy a third time in trembling. Books for Egypt, the Russian fans knew their joy not stay. For the world cup, nobody believed in a good tournament, of the host country, but after a little more than 150 minutes of football had the Russians there already 8 in the basket, the same as during their last two world cup’s together.
Only after that third hit, it seemed Egypt shaken up, Trezeguet moved the ball just next to the post and Said tried it from about 30 metres. Then, suddenly, Salah falsely gagged by Zobnin. The ref gave a free kick, but after the intervention of the VAR went the ball on the dot. It was of course Salah itself which is located behind the ball, and that bone-dry converting: 3-1. Remarkable; the penalty of Salah was the first shot on goal of Russia against got.
There crept some doubt in the Russian ranks, but whom a final offensive of Egypt expecting was there anyway for the effort. More than a shot of Salah that, in addition to went created the North Africans, not more. Russia takes six to six and a half leg in the 1/8th finals, Egypt may be bags are already almost suits. If Saudi Arabia tomorrow don’t win, Uruguay, Russia is sure of the next round, and Egypt is also mathematically disabled.
