Fifa World Cup - Russia 2018

HT Russia 0 – 0 Egypt #WorldCup

Half-time: Russia 0-0 Egypt Egypt have not scored a goal from open play in the World Cup since 1934. Can they do it this time? Mohamed Salah will be the man they look up to. The Liverpool forward looks to be in the mood tonight…


Salah flashes wide! Some lovely inter-play between Egyptian players see a pass being played towards the striker Marwan who dummies it to run to Salah. The Liverpool forward shoots on the turn from the edge of the area but the shot goes wide…

That was an entertaining first half, frenetic and very open. Both teams have attacked at every opportunity and although there’s been a lack of ingenuity and also of really clear chances, it’s been kind of gripping.

And it can only get better in the second period because both teams could do with the win: Russia won’t be particularly keen on going into their final game needing a result against Uruguay, with Egypt to face Saudi Arabia. Salah has not been playing at full throttle but has looked dangerous on a couple of occasions.

Waiting for another half and see if we can get goals.
