That game, at the time of writing, remains 1-0 to Egypt and Hector Cuper's side look set to bow out with a win.

Saudi Arabia earned a penalty kick right before halftime, with Ahmed Fathy called for a handball at the edge of the box, but El Hadary came to the rescue, making an incredible diving save on Fahad Al Muwallad's spot kick and tipping it off the crossbar.

M: Al-Ahli's Alexis Ruano is watching the game and is hoping for a Saudi Arabia win by the looks of it.

Although neither of Saudi Arabia or Egypt can now make it to the Round of 16 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, fans can nevertheless expect a competitive contest between the two. Then they fell apart with Salah when he returned for the Russian Federation match.

Saudi Arabia tried to test Al Hadary early, with Hussain Al Mogahwi attempting a speculative chance from distance in the third minute, but it hooked well wide of the goal.

"We've seen that certain concepts work, we've seen alternatives, we've tried to bring in new players as well, and this experience that we have had specifically in the run-up to this World Cup has been very important". Mohamed Salah was coming off a historic season with Liverpool. We reckon that both for him and the rest of the squad that will come as a huge relief.

Juan Antonio Pizzi's team will now head into their final group A game and will be looking to avoid a clean sweep of defeats.

Follow the live updates from the two Group A clashes, where Russian Federation takes on Uruguay and Egypt plays Saudi Arabia.

El-Hadary has been a member of Egypt's national team since 1996 and has made over 150 appearances for the team. That means El-Hadary will become the oldest player ever to appear at a World Cup.
