Saudi Arabia sealed win over Egypt in final seconds, claiming third in Group A

Saudi Arabia sealed win over Egypt in final seconds, claiming third in Group A

World cup ended for Egypt as a nightmare loses their last match of FIFA world cup 2018 in last minute.

Saudi Arabia and Egypt signed off their 2018 FIFA World Cup™ participation with an absorbing spectacle at Volgograd Arena that was only settled in the final minute. The match between Group A’s two already-eliminated sides had everything: fight, emotion, goals, broken records and a dramatic twist at the end.

Mohamed Salah’s neatly-taken lob over the onrushing goalkeeper looked to have knocked the wind out of the Saudi sails, and they almost conceded a second to the Liverpool forward immediately afterwards. However, Juan Antonio Pizzi’s team refused to give in and instead scored twice themselves – once at the end of each half.

Saudi Arabia played their best match of the tournament, showing quality football virtually throughout the entire 90 minutes. A momentary lapse in concentration led to the conceded goal, but the players quickly gathered themselves together and equalised before half-time. In the second half, the Saudis were the more technically proficient side and managed to snatch victory at the end.
