Egypt keeper El Hadary becomes World Cup's oldest player

Egypt attacker Mohamed Salah

Saudi Arabia's Salem Aldawsari celebrates with a flip after scoring his side's second goal during the group A match between Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Volgograd Arena in Volgograd, Russia, Monday, June 25, 2018.

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.

Yet, in what proved to be a true World Cup fairy tale, Egypt's 45-year-old reserve goalkeeper Essam El Hadary - making his tournament debut at long last - guessed correctly to push Fahad Al-Muwallad's penalty onto the bar and out.

Kawashima did manage to hold on to a shot from Ismaila Sarr soon after, the FC Metz stopper falling to his left to stop a volley. The African side got off to a fast start, scoring 11 minutes in thanks to a fortunate bounce off Sadio Mane .

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 decision was confirmed after a video review and the penalty was taken in the sixth minute of injury time.

"I don't think that's true".

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

The rout was the first time England have scored more than four goals at a World Cup finals since winning the tournament in 1966. Before, during and after the match, England fans have been getting carried away and why the hell not.

Edinson Cavani rounded off a third successive victory for the South Americans, who finish the first phase with a 100% record and are yet to concede a goal.

The Pharaohs went out of the tournament with a whimper as they crashed to a 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia, meaning they leave Russian Federation without a point from their three group games. Following the later matches in Group B, Uruguay will play Portugal in Sochi on Saturday in the round of 16 while host Russian Federation will face 2010 champions Spain at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday.

He didn't get on the scoresheet as Egypt were beaten 2-1 by Saudi Arabia but he did save a penalty in the first half with his country 1-0 up.

Wayfair case, overturning the long-standing rule that states could not tax businesses or sellers outside of that state's borders. While this ruling is beneficial to state governments, it stands to have a negative impact on retailers and consumers alike.

Egypt was hurt when midfielder Abdalla Said went off with an injury at halftime.
