Saudi Arabia and Egypt teams out of the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup today would like to say goodbye to the tournament with victory in their last Group A match.
Saudi Arabia and Egypt lost two or two matches in the group stage and missed the final 16, after which their last match in the league is now just a mere formality. Saudi Arabia has lost 0-5 to hosts host Russia in their match and 0-1 to Uruguay in the second match.
Saudi team has not won a single match in the World Cup in the last 24 years. But the team will want to break the record against Egypt today. The team has not yet opened the account of its points in two games and is fourth in the bottom of its group. Saudi Arabia is yet to score a single goal in the 21st edition of the World Cup.
For the first time since the 2006 World Cup in Germany, this prestigious tournament was the first time Saudi Arabia’s biggest strength was being considered as the unity of the players present in the team. But the team’s defense failed in both the matches, and he had to go out of the competition.
The Egyptian team could not perform anything special in the first two matches. The team suffered a 0-1 loss to Uruguay in the absence of Mohammad Saha in their first match and 3-1 to Russia in the second match. Egypt is at number three in the group. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the final -16. Russia and Uruguay have qualified for the final-16 from Group A.
Prior to the match both teams performed their regular practice. Saudi Arabia coach Juan Antonia Pizzi and Egypt sweat in the ground under the guidance of his coach Hector Cooper. Egyptian star player Mohammed Advani would like to conclude the tournament with victory.
