Saudi Arabia pip Egypt in final Group tie

It was Egypt who broke the deadlock on 21 minutes as Salah latched onto a long ball before lobbing the on-rushing Yasser Al Mosailem to nestle the ball in the back of the net.

There was little to play for in Monday's game between Saudi Arabia and Egypt, with both sides already eliminated from the World Cup before kickoff, but the match will go down in history.

It was Salah's second goal at the World Cup, and Egypt's first in open play at the World Cup since 1934.

Yet, in what proved to be a true World Cup fairy tale, Egypt's 45-year-old reserve goalkeeper Essam El Hadary - making his tournament debut at long last - guessed correctly to push Fahad Al-Muwallad's penalty onto the bar and out.

But Saudi Arabia produced a stirring fightback and equalised via a Salman Al-Faraj penalty just before the break, before Salem Al-Dawsari netted a dramatic victor in the fifth minute of injury-time. "Talking about the future, well, the association will have to decide what they're going to do".

Almuwallad had earlier missed a chance to equalise when El Hadary saved his penalty. The Colombia goalkeeper was 43 when he came on as a late substitute in his team's 4-1 victory over Japan four years ago at the World Cup in Brazil.

The Second half saw the Saudi Arabians dominating the all Arab affair.

While Saudi Arabia finish in third place in the group, Egypt end the tournament without a point and have not registered a victory at this competition in seven attempts.

In the other group match, Uruguay beat Russian Federation 3-0 to finish first to clinch the group.

Both sides came into the clash with nothing but pride to play for as Russian Federation and Uruguay had already qualified from the group for the knockout stage.

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.
