Russian Federation vs. Egypt - Football Match Report

Egypt's Mohamed Salah waves for fans during a World Cup training session at Cairo international stadium on 9 June 2018

FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Streaming, Russia vs Egypt Live Score: For Russia, the biggest hurdle will be complacency.

The 26-year-old's birthday was ruined by the Uruguay defeat and he spent the match on the bench as Cuper elected not to risk his star man, who is making his return from a shoulder injury. And yet they are on the verge of marching on, with an impressive 5-0 thrashing of Saudi Arabia and this hard-fought 3-1 victory over Egypt.

The Egyptian Football Federation (EFA) laid that decision exclusively at Cuper's door, maintaining the 26-year-old was fit to face Uruguay but deemed not ready for the risk.

Russian Federation were the better side in the early minutes, pinning Egypt back in their own half and enjoying a number of half-chances.

Egypt coach Hector Cuper had little option but to play him, of course, given a second consecutive match missed would likely mean Salah being fitter only for a dead rubber against Saudi Arabia. After Russia, Egypt will play Saudi Arabia, which they can win but now, they need to win against Russia to come ahead in the table.

The arrest comes just a week after German prosecutors fined Volkswagen $1.2 billion, Esme Nicholson reports for NPR from Berlin . Volkswagen first admitted in 2015 it had rigged millions of diesel engines to cheat on emissions tests.

The hype was as high as one would expect leading up to Salah's start on Tuesday, but what could have been a fairy-tale comeback became a story of underperformance. "He's one of the best and you always want to compete with the best and win".

Cuper's team showed against Uruguay it will not defend as generously as the hapless Saudis, and Salah, who should make his first start, will relish the chance to torment Russia's aging defence.

Three minutes later it was 3-0 as the towering 6ft 4in (1.96 metre) Dzyuba demonstrated quick feet to free himself inside the area before slotting low past a helpless Mohamed El-Shenawy.

Egypt pulled a goal back 20 minutes from time.

It later turnout out that Kamui Kobayashi had simply forgotten to pit and was asked to conserve fuel to make it through the lap. Alonso's victory completes the second part of motorsport's "triple crown" for the two-time Formula 1 world champion.

Defensive midfielder Tarek Hamed was substituted during Friday's defeat with a back issue, but the Egyptian FA have confirmed he will be fit to face Russian Federation.

After a goalless first 45 minutes during which Egypt were the livelier side but were clearly nervous in front of goal, the game burst into life in the most fortuitous of manners from the hosts, Captain Ahmed Fathi deflecting a shot into his own net two minutes into the second half.

Egypt lost by the single goal to Uruguay the other day and can not afford another slip up.

By starting its World Cup with a win, Senegal also saved Africa from embarrassment in the tournament. 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.

Salah collected a plethora of end-of-season awards after a stellar debut campaign with Liverpool that yielded an incredible 44 goals in all competitions.
