It was a nightmare for Egyptian captain Ahmed Fathi as he scored an own goal! A speculative cross into the box was punched out by the goalkeeper as far as a Russian player outside the area. A shot comes in but it is straight at Dzyuba in the area but Fathi tries to prevent the ball from reaching him and in the process knees the ball into his own net.
CHERYSHEV! That’s 2-0 for Russia after an exquisite move. Lovely buildup play between Samedov and Fernandes sees the latter get to the touchline before cutting a pass back precisely to Denis Cheryshev. He went on to sidefoot first-time to score the goal.
IT’S THREE! A long free-kick into the box is not dealt with by the Egyptian defence. Ali Gabr fails to clear it properly sees the ball stolen by Artem Dzyuba who smashed the ball home from inside the box. Russia running riot!
Salah was brought down around the penalty area and the referee gave a freekick just outside. VAR intervened and awarded Egypt a spot-kick and Salah converted it. But it was a little to late, the hosts Russia is through to the round of 16. Egypt may be on their way back home.
