Saudi Arabia v Egypt

Egypt's forward Mohamed Salah stands next to Egypt's midfielder Mahmoud'Kahraba Abdel Moneim and Egypt's goalkeeper Essam El Hadary during a training session at the Akhmat Arena stadium in Grozny

The 24-year-old, who featured against Uruguay and Russian Federation, promised the fans that the players will exert all efforts to defeat the Green Falcons in the dead rubber on Monday at the Volgograd Arena, as a win against Saudi Arabia would mark Egypt's first ever World Cup victory.

Both teams lost their first two matches in Group A and will not move on to the knockout phase, though they will be playing for pride and to avoid a last-place finish.

The goalkeeper beats the previous record, held by Colombia keeper Faryd Mondragon, who was 43 years and three days old when he appeared at the World Cup in 2014.

Turki al-Sheikh, the Saudi Arabian sports authority chief, lashed out at the players after the Russian Federation debacle in a Twitter video, claiming the performance was a personal insult.

Manager Juan Antonio Pizzi will be looking to lead Saudi Arabia to their third win in World Cup history, whereas Egypt will be hoping to claim their first ever victory at the tournament.

Saudi Arabia were thumped 5-0 by Russian Federation and then lost 1-0 to an unconvincing Uruguay.
