  • Egypt attacker Mohamed Salah

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah gave Egypt the lead with a brilliant chip over goalkeeper Yasser Al-Mosailem before Saudi Arabia were awarded two penalties in quick succession.

And while both sides had already been eliminated ahead of Monday's game at the Volgograd Arena, the Green Falcons at least avoided the ignominy of finishing the campaign without a point as they overtook Egypt into third place in the group. Records were tumbled again as Saudi Arabia missed a glorious chance to level the match from the penalty spot as El-Hadar became the oldest goalkeeper to save a penalty kick in the World Cup and only the 4th player in World Cup history to save a penalty in his debut match.

He surpasses the record of Colombia keeper Faryd Mondragon, who was 43 years and 3 days old in his final appearance at the 2014 World Cup.

Salman-al-Faraj restored parity for Saudi Arabia dispatching a penalty in the stoppage time of the first half after Ahmed Hegazi was cautioned for tugging the shirt of Fahad Al-Muwallad. The decision was confirmed after a video review and the penalty was taken in the sixth minute of injury time.

"I think that in general we kept control of the pace, we kept possession. and I think that we deserved to win", Saudi coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said.

He had no chance with Aldawsari's last-gasp victor, however.

The result meant Saudi Arabia finished third in Group A as they scored their only goals of the tournament and vastly improved on a 5-0 thrashing by hosts Russian Federation in their opening game.

In the other group match, Uruguay beat Russian Federation 3-0 to finish first to clinch the group.

Ten minutes into the second half, Saudi Arabia almost took the lead as El-Hadary's clearance landed at the feet of Bahbri, who volleyed over the bar from 12-yards out.
