Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov says the World Cup hosts hope for many more celebrations after putting one foot in the last 16 by beating Mohamed Salah's Egypt 3-1 on Tuesday. Those two scenarios would also eliminate Egypt, which started with a 1-0 loss to Uruguay.

Egypt take on Saudi Arabia in their final fixture, while Russian Federation battle Uruguay. But the injury suffered by Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final put a damper on those hopes.

Egypt have never beaten European opposition at the World Cup but need a win to stay in the tournament.

He had little option but to play him, of course, given a second consecutive match missed would likely mean Salah being fitter only for a dead rubber against Saudi Arabia.

Liverpool's non-internationals will report back to Melwood on July 2, with friendlies scheduled against Chester, Tranmere Rovers, Bury and Blackburn Rovers before the tour of the United States.

He wasn't pleased with Egypt's inability to finish plays, even with striker Mohamed Salah back from injury.

In his acceptance speech, he delivered nine rules for life, both humorous and serious. Star Chadwick Boseman won for best hero and best movie performance, and Michael B.

It will be scant consolation for the Egyptian King, however, as his talents are deserving of much more on the worldwide stage.

Hosts Russia dominated from the off in St Petersburg, but had to wait until the first minutes of the second half to take the lead through Ahmed Fathi's own goal.

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system proved its worth to give Egypt a glimmer of hope when referee Enrique Caceres had initially awarded a foul outside the box rather than a penalty when Salah was pulled by Zhirkov. You've seen him on the pitch, he was in good shape and nobody can argue that he isn't extremely important to the team.

There was a psychological boost to be gained too, as Egyptian fans, draped in flags and coated in face paint, bounced and cheered whenever Salah's face appeared on the big screen.

"He is an exceptional player, but not a world-class football star who can compete for the Golden Boot", he said. Additionally we sit down for a lengthy chat with U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro, who explains how the 2026 World Cup bid was won by the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
