Russia Sour Mohamed Salah's Return To Close In On Last 16

Russia Sour Mohamed Salah's Return To Close In On Last 16

The Liverpool star duly converted from the spot but it could not be enough to kick-start a comeback, and while Russia's place in the last 16 will be confirmed should Uruguay beat Saudi Arabia, Egypt look set to fall out at the first hurdle. With 23/20 odds, Russian Federation are the favourites to win this contest comfortably, especially after their strong performance against Saudi Arabia, while the chances of Egypt coming through with a victory is is placed at 13/5.

Cuper's team showed against Uruguay they will not defend as generously as the hapless Saudis, and Salah, who should make his first start, will relish the chance to torment Russia's aging defense.

I hope he will be fit to play.

Mahmoud Trezeguet narrowly missed the target with a curling shot and Salah tried a similar move, sending a left-foot effort on the turn just wide after a clever dummy from lone striker Marwan Mohsen three minutes before the break.

On the other hand, Egypt's majority of goals were from cross balls, so Russia's weakness plays particularly well in Egypt's favor.

The win gives the hosts six points from their opening two games and puts them in pole position to advance after outscoring their opponents 8-1 thus far in the tournament.

Egypt will also return to play on Monday against the Green Falcons at Volgograd Arena, where they will hope to sign off their Group A campaign with their first victory of the World Cup.

Big news for Egypt!

Free-scoring Russia's World Cup dream continued with an emphatic 3-1 victory over Egypt in their second Group A match in St. Petersburg on Tuesday. Denis Cheryshev capped a brace in Russia's opening 5-0 rout of Saudi Arabia with a superb stoppage-time finish but the Spanish-raised midfielder knows all about an esteemed tactician who he expects to make life hard for his team-mates.

Egypt lost by the single goal to Uruguay the other day and can not afford another slip up.

Does Russia clinch a quarterfinal berth, or can Egypt get the upset? After Russia, Egypt will play Saudi Arabia, which they can win but now, they need to win against Russia to come ahead in the table.

The kickoff to the World Cup couldn't have gone any better for Russian Federation. EFA declarations over Salah's fitness are one thing, but whether his stellar 44-goal form from Liverpool this season can be rediscovered is the major source of intrigue.

Egypt head into the clash on the back of two consecutive defeats, and have also failed to score a goal in their past three matches.
