For mother Russia!
Another convincing performance from Cheryshev.
So glad for him.
The Russian team is very effective
If it wasn't for the stupid own goal, Egypt was gonna get at least a draw if not the win, I stand 100% behind this. They were playing really well, but the own goal broke their spirit and Russia managed to take the maximum out of it in a very quick way. Anyway, congratulations to Russia for qualifying.
@specter yes but what a stupid own goal. You deserve to lose if you do something like this, i'm sorry for Egypt.
Cheryshev for golden ball!
@boss_dj learn bout football bfore u make a comment
@boss_dj The golden ball is for best player of the tournament ...
After Ronaldo's hat-trick this was the second match I truly enjoyed.
@mr.Pepper The Portugal-Spain game was enjoyable because of Spain's quality on the ball, not because of Ronaldos hattrick. But yes, very nice old school football game.
@neumi17 Well, you just can't deny the fact that Ronaldo scored a hat trick against Spain, and the world celebrated that. He single handedly redeem Portugal in the brink of defeat.
does somebody know that russia leads the bloody war in ukraine?
@iii Wrong site
@iii Go home troll. If Russians attacked Ukraine, they annexed it in two days.
@RektyOne go home russians. u know, rectal boy, they attack every day since 03.2014
@iii bro honestly it's football not politics. Did you know USA leads a bloody war in Syria, Iraq, Palestine and led many wars before? It honestly doesn't matter. It's football, so go shove your stupid politics in your gullet.
@Adoynikov stupid is u
@Adoynikov unless it affects your country or you personally,yeah - football is apart from politics. But only if you lose someone from your closest one, you need to run away from your home - then suddenly people change their minds..
What a dive Salah
@Sinaj shut up no one agrees with you
@Sinaj What dive, when ?
@neumi17 the penalty scene was a blatant dive. Just because he is egyptian and media's babe, everyone turns blind now?
@Sinaj Blind ? It was overviewed by three referees on a video screen for 3 minutes. If it was a dive, they wouldn't have called a penalty.
@neumi17 Griezmann dived clearly, they ckecked the VAR and called a penalty. Salah exaggerating was clear in this scene i don't believe that someone can't see it unless they don't want to.
M O T H E R R U S S I A
@Lulzovich o yeah! grandmother
Egypts knocked out now. no way back for them realistically.
Please continue the good approach.... Viva Egypt
Very entertaining and enjoyable game, no possession bs ...
@neumi17- Not much quality in the final third though and Salah is being left on his own to face 2 or sometimes 3 Russian defenders. Russia are missing Dzagoev's guile in front of the area. My 2-1 to Egypt prediction looks optimistic.
@SteveHyland If Dzagoev have not been injured we would not see Cherchesov's goals.
@enxit- Yes of course, but Cheryshev should be playing even with Dzagoev fit. Dzagoev offers something different to everybody else in the Russian team and today that final ball was missing.
@SteveHyland Now even more... stupid goal. Salah will step up though I think.
@neumi17 Salah has been completely absent. Even his penality wasnt as well taken as before.
@khonda Well, he wasn't a great factor, that's true. But in almost every dangerous situation in front of the goal, he was involved ( 2 key passes, 4 shots ) ! Plus he has less talented players around him, that can't set him up properly, so that he acted actually more like a playmaker. On top he is of course still not fully fit yet.
@neumi17 Well, not this game
Golovin had a header on target (approx. 27 minutes played). Where is that in the stats?
@Hyttel Heh, you signed up on this site only to point out a little mistake?
@mihopol Admirable tbh
Because of the home factor I go for a draw ... 1-1
Eygpt win. 1-2 2-2 2-3
@ProGuess all wrong
Salah will play this game.
@Davisson he will
Despite the loss, Egypt played really well against Uruguay. Russia wasn't tested by the Saudis. Egypt to win, with or without Salah.
@HollandFan1 It was 50-50 until the own goal. Great game by Russia.
@HollandFan1 I can't predict the future 100%.
Russia clash 5:0 cause Saudi Arabia is too weak only. They are poor in attack and average in defence as well.
For Eygpt, stop mentioning Salah Salah Salah, he is a good player and with form this year, but however not a Messi Ronaldo class.. not to mention this is never a one man game, an injured Salah could do nth but just ruining the attacking form of a team. Considering Russia will play a very careful game to ensure at least 4 points before clashing Uruguay, a draw would be expected to see. 1:1 / 1:2
@ambrose I agree with everything you said
Russia will win by one goal
Russia to win narrowly since Egypt has a solid defence.
@deakyb Russia has a rather average team, slow, immobile and not very creative. On paper Egypt should be better but one can't underestimate the home factor.
a must win to King Pharaoh
100% russia double chance and risky draw - cheers people!
Russia have probably two players, which stand out - Denis Cheryshev and Aleksandr Golovin. I'm far from impressed by their team as a whole, never mind their 5:0 trashing SA. As I mentioned in another comment, SA played like an amateurs, so this result proves absolutely nothing. And we saw that Egypt can put up a solid fight vs. a team with amazing forwards as Urugay. If Salah plays this game and they mange to neutralize the two I mentioned above, I expect Egypt to win, probably narrow. 0-1 or 1-2
@specter Likely indeed. Russia 2-3 Egypt
@specter that's not a typo, that's deliberate, wasn't it?
@Book an absolute typo lol, but still sounds amusing :D
Russia Win Cherîșev score :)
@watfordAlbert The Nostradamus of Warford! :O
