Saudi Arabia pulled off a last-gasp 2-1 win over Egypt as the two sides departed from Russian Federation on Monday, with the Saudis notching their first World Cup victory since 1994 and adding to the misery of Egypt's prolific striker Mohamed Salah. "Just want to say that Egypt reached the World Cup after 28 years, some players here do not have the required experience, thanks to all of them and we will back again in 2022".

There was little to play for in Monday's game between Saudi Arabia and Egypt, with both sides already eliminated from the World Cup before kickoff, but the match will go down in history.

Although he gave up the two goals, he also saved a penalty in the first half.

Stopper El-Hadary was born in Damietta on January 15, 1973, and now plays his football in Saudi Arabia for the side Al-Taawoun - he made 22 appearances last season and even scored a goal, a penalty.

Mohamed Salah had been quiet for Egypt but midway through the first half, the Liverpool winger put his nation ahead by lobbing Yasser Al-Mosailem after running onto a long ball from Abdallah Said.

Egypt will crash out of the World Cup regardless of their result against Saudi Arabia.

Juan Antonio Pizzi's men found the early rhythm as Hussain Al Moghawi was presented a few yards of open space and made a decision to test Essam El Hadary, but the effort was skewed wide.

However, right before the end of the first half and after intense referee deliberation, S. Al-Faraj scored in a penalty shot before another and final shot was secured by S. Al-Dawsari in the last seconds of extra time. A minute later, he parried away a goal-bound header from Muhannad Asiri.

Saudi Arabia finished Group A in third place with three points, while Egypt was last after losing all three of its games.

Cavani sealed the win with a tap in from close range for his first World Cup goal.
