Hector Cuper rues Mohamed Salah injury after Egypt loss

Edinson Cavani sends message to Liverpool FC star

'Mohamed Salah isn't world class' - Egypt star only exceptional for Liverpool, says Cheryshev's father ahead of Russia clash at World Cup 2018

Cuper bemoaned Salah's absence from Egypt's World Cup preparations because of injury.

Russian Federation is playing its final group stage match against Uruguay on June 25 in Samara, while the Egyptian national team is set to take on Saudi Arabia also next Monday in the city of Volgograd.

Cheryshev, who entered the World Cup as a fringe player, is proving lethal in front of goal and is surprisingly tied as leading scorer with Cristiano Ronaldo.

"We didn't qualify for the World Cup after such a long time away to play three games and go home", Elneny told Federation Internationale de Football Association website. We have just had some very agreeable team news if you are an Egypt fan.

Confounding grim pre-tournament predictions, the host nation earned a second straight emphatic victory to start the group stage by beating Egypt 3-1.

But the talismanic forward, who missed the Egyptians' 1-0 loss to Uruguay in their group-stage opener as he continued his recovery, couldn't force a different outcome in their second outing of the tournament on Tuesday evening.

The results put Russian Federation on the verge of making the knockout stage of a World Cup for the first time since the Soviet era.

He did find the net from the penalty spot after the VAR became involved in awarding Egypt a spotkick for a foul by Roman Zobnin on Salah after the referee had initially deemed the transgression to be a freekick, but the 73rd-minute penalty came too late.

Russia's Artem Dzyuba celebrates scoring their third goal with Aleksandr Samedov. It would take a mighty Saudi Arabia upset and a huge swing in goal difference to stop them advancing, and their involvement at least until the end of June lends the tournament a boost in terms of local interest. But I think that he would have given us all his quality and his ability.

"We are happy, madly happy", said Dzyuba. Nobody can be distracted playing at a World Cup.

"It is very hard to know what would have happened (had he not been injured) but we know the quality he has".

But Zhirkov's best piece of defending was a last-ditch tackle that prevented Salah a simple tap in at the back post.

Both teams gained a high tempo of the game as the opening half rolled on, but it ended scoreless despite numerous shots on the goal on behalf of both sides. With a goal and two assists, Golovin was on top of his game, intercepting opposition passes and spreading the ball out to the strikers and created several chances for his team, making him an exciting player to watch in the game against Egypt.
