Salah returns but Egypt lose 3-1

  • Russia midfielder Miranchuk Egypt are similar to Saudi Arabia

The Egyptians were handed a sucker punch a minute after the restart as captain Ahmed Fathi guided the ball into his own net to put the home nation 1-0 up.

Mohamed Salah returned from a shoulder injury suffered in the Champions League final, but his second-half penalty was not enough to help Egypt avoid a 3-1 loss to host nation Russian Federation.

Egypt face Saudi Arabia in their final group game on Monday but will need their next opponents to beat Uruguay tomorrow to stand any chance of progressing to the knockout stages.

Salah pulled a goal back for Egypt in the 72nd minute with a powerful strike from the penalty spot after the Liverpool man was fouled inside the area following a review from the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

"Thank God that I could score three goals in two games, but my aim is just to help the team", said Cheryshev, who plays as a winger for Villarreal said.

Salah still appears in discomfort ahead of Russian Federation game
The Liverpool star did not feature in Egypt's opening World Cup match, which ended in a 1-0 defeat to Uruguay. Mohamed Salah was Egypt's top scorer in qualifying with five goals in five appearances.

A awful 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. Then Denis Cheryshev and Artyom Dzyuba scored in quick succession to leave Russian Federation on course for a victory that followed up a 5-0 opening-night win over Saudi Arabia.

Shinji Kagawa scored from the penalty spot and although Juan Quintero equalised late in the first half, Japan made their superior numbers count, with Yuya Osako heading a victor in the 73rd minute. While most had them winning that first match, few projected them to explode for five goals versus Saudi Arabia. "The only thing I can be sad for is I would have liked to have seen him present at the training ground with the team". You can't be distracted when you're playing at the World Cup.

"I could never have dreamed of anything like this", he said after Thursday's game.

Yet from the start, it was clear that Salah was staying out of anything too physical and there was no concerted effort from his Egypt teammates to pick him out each time. The only change for Tuesday's game will likely be the insertion of Denis Cheryshev into the starting lineup in place of the injured Alan Dzagoev.
