    Egypt exit World Cup with zero points

    Egypt’s 2018 World Cup campaign wrapped up with a last-gasp 2-1 loss to Group A rivals Saudi Arabia at the Volgograd Arena on Monday afternoon.

    The Pharaohs conceded goals deeps into injury time at the end of both halves to suffer three successive losses and pick up the ‘wooden spoon’in the group, with Uruguay and Russia advancing to the last 16 in first and second respectively.

    Despite plenty of excitement around the Mohamed Salah-led Pharaohs coming into the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Egypt made an early exit without picking up a point in group play. Egypt lost all three of its matches, first 1-0 to Uruguay and then 3-1 to Russia.

    Egypt's final match was essentially a friendly against Saudi Arabia, and although it set one record with keeper Essam El-Hadary becoming the oldest World Cup player at 45, it ended in disappointment with a 2-1 loss after taking an early lead.
