Uruguay finish top after beating Russia, Saudi beat Egypt in dead rubber

In a post-match interview, Salah, who scored Egypt's only two goals at the World Cup, thanked fans who traveled for the team and supported them in their three matches.

El Hadary made his Egypt debut in 1996, 10 months before the youngest player in Egypt's World Cup squad, Ramadan Sobhi, was born and has now earned his 159th cap.

It was an enthralling first half between the two teams from Group A who have already been eliminated.

At Volgograd Arena, Saudi Arabia ended their poor record at the World Cup by recording a 2-1 win over Egypt.

Mohamed Salah gave Egypt the lead in the 22nd minute with a delightful lob over the goalkeeper.

Football star Mo Salah scored first within the first 25 minutes, marking Egypt's fourth ever goal at the World Cup.

But Saudi Arabia produced a stirring fightback and equalised via a Salman Al-Faraj penalty just before the break, before Salem Al-Dawsari netted a dramatic victor in the fifth minute of injury-time.

The Green Falcons were, however, awarded another spot-kick in first-half injury-time when Al-Muwallad was adjudged to have been dragged down inside the area by Ali Gabr and, upon consultation with the Video Assistant Referee, the award stood.

El-Hadary wasn't simply out on the field to set a record.

El Hadary was unable to repeat the feat when Alfaraj lined up against him at the end of the half, going the wrong way and having no chance. A minute later, he parried away a goal-bound header from Muhannad Asiri.

Saudi Arabia finished Group A in third place with three points, while Egypt was last after losing all three games.

The shot-stopper was given the nod for the Egyptian's in their dead rubber clash on Monday at the age of 45 years and 161 days old.

Saudi Arabia pressed for a victor in the second half but the game appeared to be heading for a 1-1 draw - which would have meant Egypt finished third in the group - until Abdullah Otayf teed up Al-Dawsari to angle his shot past El-Hadary.

Cavani sealed the win with a tap in from close range for his first World Cup goal.
