Senegal saves African from embarrassment at World Cup

Share

Barely three weeks have passed since a tussle with Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos in the UEFA Champions League final defeat left Salah's World Cup in doubt, and Tuesday's display suggested all is still not right.

However, the damage had already been done in a 15-minute blitz from Russian Federation early in the second half, Ahmed Fathy's own-goal opening the floodgates.

It was hardly a classic but the hosts cemented their lead with two neat goals within three minutes, with Denis Cheryshev and Dzyuba himself finishing off neat moves. When Salah pulled free at the back post, Zhirkov made the clearance, scrambling the ball over his own bar.

Colombia's Carlos Sanchez received a red card in the opening minutes of their Group H match against Japan for a deliberate handball inside the box, to become the second fastest to be sent off in a World Cup match.

There was a psychological boost to be gained too, as Egyptian fans, draped in flags and coated in face paint, bounced and cheered whenever Salah's face appeared on the big screen.

Not long after that he won a penalty following another burst forward, which proved too much for Roman Zobnin to handle.

Russian Federation wasted no time in carrying on where they left off against Saudi Arabia - Sergei Ignashevich heading at Mohamed El-Shenawy before Aleksandr Golovin fired wide.

Mourinho revealed that Russia's weak point lies in their cross balls from set pieces, adding that even Saudi Arabia, which had very small players able to intercept a lot of Russia's air balls. If Uruguay draw with the Saudis on Wednesday, Egypt will be out.

"I think that nobody can deny or argue Mo Salah's importance in the Egypt national team", Egypt head coach Hector Cuper said after a loss that leaves them facing a group-stage exit. Those are two psychological poles, however you put it. Yes, the draw was favourable to say the least, even down to the fortunate organisation of the fixtures, but out of so little expectation they are creating a buzz, at home and overseas.

While Egypt suffered a heartbreaking last-minute defeat to Group A favorites Uruguay, despite an impressive display without their attacking talisman Mohamed Salah.

An already injury-ravaged squad was further hit by Alan Dzagoev's hamstring problem in the opener but in his absence the tree-sized Dzyuba is coming to the fore.

Tarek Hamed also had to be substituted in the first game after he experienced a back issue but Egypt confirmed he would be fit to play while right-back Ahmed Fathi has also overcome a muscle strain. The 2-1 victory was the first and only African win in the first round of matches, after Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia all lost their opening games. But it is clear that belief, and pride, is now growing. "If not, they will have to go against Uruguay in the searching of point".
