Saudi Arabia v Egypt

Egypt's Mohamed Salah

Egypt also gave 45-year-old keeper Essam El-Hadary a chance to become the oldest ever player to appear at a World Cup. Saudi Arabia was awarded another penalty late in the first half and El-Hadary went the wrong way.

While there's little at stake for the two countries in Monday's match, Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary will be desperate to be on the field in order to enter the World Cup record books as the oldest player to compete at the finals. Despite the proximity, they have only faced one another six times.

Saudi Arabia looked like the more fluid of the two in the attack, earning an eighth-minute corner kick off a smooth build-up, but Egypt cleared to safety, keeping it 0-0 in a match that played with the pace of a friendly at the start.

Egypt are seeking a first World Cup win at their third tournament appearance and face a Saudi Arabia side looking to avoid finishing bottom of a World Cup group for the fourth time in their history.

M: After VAR review, the penalty is confirmed and Salman Al-Faraj buries it!

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