The 24-year-old, who featured against Uruguay and Russian Federation, promised the fans that the players will exert all efforts to defeat the Green Falcons in the dead rubber on Monday at the Volgograd Arena, as a win against Saudi Arabia would mark Egypt's first ever World Cup victory.

While the historic feat will be the centre of attention, the seven-time African Cup of Nations winners are aiming to record their first World Cup victory in nine attempts.

Neither side have managed to put a single point on the board up to now, and while Saudi Arabia have failed to score a single goal, Egypt's only strike came from a Salah penalty.

Although the appearance of the 45-year-old legendary goalkeeper did not change anything because Egypt had already been sent out of Russian Federation 2018 after losing their first two games.

Egypt are seeking a first World Cup win at their third tournament appearance and face a Saudi Arabia side looking to avoid finishing bottom of a World Cup group for the fourth time in their history. Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the Group A match between Saudi Arabia and Egypt of the 2018 World Cup at Volgograd Arena.

Who do you think will win between the Saudis and Egyptians?

He was born in Kafr al-Battikh in 1973, and started playing for his local club before being signed by Second Division club Damietta at age 17. When he returned, Egypt lost 3-1 to Russian Federation, with Salah scoring Egypt's lone goal.
