Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Live Score, FIFA World Cup 2018

Essam El-Hadary

Just minutes later, however, a second penalty was given to Saudi Arabia, and this time converted by Salman Al Faraj.

Egypt also gave 45-year-old keeper Essam El-Hadary a chance to become the oldest ever player to appear at a World Cup.

But what's this? Another two top saves from El-Hadary keeps Saudi Arabia at bay.

Both Saudi Arabia and Egypt are already eliminated from the 2018 World Cup after their first two Group A matches. Despite the proximity, they have only faced one another six times.

That save kept Egypt up 1-0, but he couldn't go 2-2 on penalty kicks.

For Saudi Arabia, this was always going to be a tough World Cup.

Salah started against Russian Federation last Tuesday but was unable to make an impact as the hosts ran out 3-1 winners. The Pharaohs are taking on Saudi Arabia in a clash that means nothing in terms of progression but has a heavy dose of pride on the line.

Saudi Arabia came out the more aggressive of the two sides in the second half and almost took the lead nine minutes in.

El-Hadary has spent the largest portion of his club career with Al-Ahly with whom he won eight Egyptian Premier League titles, four Egypt Cups, four Egyptian Super Cups, four CAF Champions League titles, three CAF Super Cups, one Arab Club Champions Cup, and two Arab Super Cups.

The big team news that has come out so far is that Hector Cuper has had a heart and will start Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary.

This may be a dead rubber, however, both sides will be keen to get a win.

Egypt, making their first World Cup appearance since 1990, had been tipped to advance into the knockout rounds after looking strong in the qualifiers.
