This game is also good candidate to put our bets and earn some cash. These will be the first time for Russia to play against Egypt and both teams will do their best to try to remain undefeated.
We could not ask more from opening game. Russia made first class sensation when they defeated Saudi Arabia. It was not so much about victory but number of goals was highly unexpected. World Cup hosts scored after twelve minutes of play Yury Gazinskiy scored first goal for Russians. Second goal was masterpiece by Denis Cheryshev 2:0. In seventy-first minute Artem Dzyuba scored third goal and winner was already decided. Until the end Russians scored two more goals 5:0. The scorers were Artem Dzyuba and Aleksandr Golovin. Victory was convincing but play was questionable. Russians had ball in their possession forty percent of the time and they committed twenty-two fouls. Goal difference is good and if they manage to hold for a draw against Egypt, their place in second phase is guaranteed no matter what they do in last game against Uruguay.
Egypt was so close to make good result against Uruguay. We all still remember how Mohamed Salah got injured in Champion’s League finals and how big question was if he’s going to take part in World Cup. Egypt decided to bring along still injured Salah and as such he had to watch clash with Uruguay from the bench. After first forty-five minutes there were no goals and that was sign to Egypt that against Uruguay they can play as equals even without their best player. One minute before the end Uruguay scores header and that goal secured minimal victory 1:0. Pharaohs must pay their attention to next match against Russia and forget that unfortunate defeat as soon as possible. Egypt has nothing more to lose and they must attack Russians if they want to reach one of two places that lead to knockout phase because draw might not be enough.
