Egypt goalie sets World Cup record, saves penalty

Mohamed Salah set to start against Saudi Arabia as Egypt target World Cup win

However, glory can not be taken away from the Egyptian goalkeeper who made the record of being the oldest player to play in the FIFA World Cup and he had some major highlights while saving an incredible penalty.

Egypt keeper Essam El Hadary became the oldest player in World Cup history when his side lost 2-1 to Saudi Arabia on Monday.

Saudi Arabia have ended their 11-game winless streak at the World Cup in dramatic style courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Egypt in Monday's Group A clash in Volgograd.

Although he gave up the two goals, he also saved a penalty in the first half.

He opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when he raced on to Abdallah Said's long pass and kept his cool to lob Saudi goalkeeper Yasser Al-Mosailem.

Football star Mo Salah scored first within the first 25 minutes, marking Egypt's fourth ever goal at the World Cup.

But Salman Al Faraj scored a spot-kick for Saudi Arabia seconds before half-time, just five minutes after El Hadary had saved Al Muwallad's effort, and Al Dawsari fired in the victor with seconds left to secure the Saudis' first World Cup win since 1994. The decision was confirmed after a video review.

El-Hadary wasn't simply out on the field to set a record.

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. The veteran goalkeeper dived to his right and flicked his left hand up to push the shot onto the bar before it was cleared.

El Hadary was unable to repeat the feat when Alfaraj lined up against him at the end of the half, going the wrong way and having no chance.

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. A minute later, he parried away a goal-bound header from Muhannad Asiri.

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.
