Loss Against Saudi Arabia

As goal keeper, Essam El Hadary is recorded the oldest goalkeeper.

Egypt ended their World Cup campaign without a point as they crashed to a 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia at the Volgograd Arena on Monday evening.

24 - Exactly 24 years ago, Saudi Arabia achieved their historic maiden victory in the World Cup.

It was an enthralling first half between the two teams from Group A who have already been eliminated.

In its final match of the 2018 World Cup, the Pharaohs have managed to lose 2-1 against Saudi Arabia.

However, El-Hadari could do nothing about Salman Al Faraj's spot-kick on the stroke of halftime and was then beaten a second time, when Salem Al Dawsari scored deep into injury time to give the Saudis a first World Cup win since 1994.

Russia Warns of 'Tough Response' to New US Military Space Force
Many suspect Trump's Space Force talk is just meant to distract Americans from the humanitarian crisis happening at our borders. Donald Trump had approached the Pentagon to make a "Space Force" that would turn into the 6th branch of the American military.

Brazil vs Costa Rica
The Serbs were wasteful against Costa Rica last weekend with Aleksander Mitrovic being the main guilty party. Only a handful of players could replicate those numbers, and none of them are in Brazil's squad.

El Hadaray did not finish victorious, however, as Salman Alfaraj - with another penalty - levelled Mohamed Salah's opener and Salem Aldawsari struck an injury-time victor.

Almuwallad had earlier missed a chance to equalise when El Hadary saved his penalty.

Egypt were seeking a first World Cup win at their third tournament appearance but finished bottom of Group A as they lost to Uruguay and Russian Federation, before a 95th minute goal by Salem Al-Dawsari saw Saudi Arabia claim a late win on Monday. The veteran goalkeeper dived to his right and flicked his left hand up to push the shot onto the bar before it was cleared.

El Hadary also made a series of good saves in the second half to deny Saudi Arabia, notably in the 69th minute when he tipped a header from Hussain Almoqahwi over the bar.

The shot-stopper was given the nod for the Egyptian's in their dead rubber clash on Monday at the age of 45 years and 161 days old.

It has been a busy World Cup for both referees and their VAR helpers, who between them have set a new benchmark at the worldwide celebration of football.
