Russian Federation on brink of knockout stage after 3-1 win over Egypt

Mohamed Salah and Jose Mourinho

Egyptian talisman Mohamed Salah, playing for the first time since injuring his shoulder in last month's Champions League final, scored Egypt's first World Cup goal in 28 years from a 73rd minute penalty awarded after a review by the video assistant referee.

Egypt were caught out early on two successive occasions but were riding their luck as both scenarios saw them go unpunished, with Aleksandr Golovin fumbling the clearest of the chances.

A terrible own goal from Ahmed Fathi, the fifth in the tournament and third from an African side, opened a goal harvest in second half of a nail-biting encounter after a barren first.

Shorn of Salah at his best and facing the hosts, Egypt had an uphill task as it was without gifting Russian Federation the initiative as they did in calamitous fashion at the start of the second-half.

There appeared little danger when Roman Zobnin's off-target shot dribbled towards goal, but under pressure from Dzyuba, Fathy threw an outstretched right leg towards the ball and turned it into his own net.

What changed was midfielder Alan Dzagoev's hamstring injury 24 minutes into the opening game against Saudi Arabia on Thursday, with the score at 1-0. Egypt's last Group A match is against Saudi Arabia on Monday.

Talking about Russian Federation, the Manchester United boss said: "They have to react better when they lost the ball because they conceded a little bit against a very naive team without physical power, so Egypt can hurt them".

Now Cherchesov has been backed with a tasty takeaway option for fans to support the team - which could bring them a slice of luck. They can not sacrifice points against either if they hope to avoid joining South Africa as the only hosts to miss getting out of their group.

"If he was not injured, it is very hard to know what would have happened but we know the quality he has", lamented Cuper, who admitted at the very least Salah's match sharpness had been blunted.

"We've done something historic but the tournament isn't over", he said. "We respect each other and the relationship is best".

GW: Yeah, and I'm bummed out that Mohamed Salah is not going to be with us for very long in this tournament. With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets.
