VOLGOGRAD -- Russia 2018 has not been a great World Cup for the Arab world with all four representatives -- Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Saudi Arabia -- losing their first two games and crashing out with a game to spare.

Saudi Arabia scored a dramatic 95th-minute winner to beat Egypt 2-1 and finish their World Cup campaign on a high in Volgograd.

Egypt took the lead in the 22nd minute as Mohamed Salah scored a delightful goal, his second of the tournament. Abdallah El Said played a long ball over the top and Salah needed just two touches, the second lifting it past Yasser Al-Mosailem.

It could have been two just a couple of minutes later when Trezeguet sent Salah clean through, but his chipped finish went horribly...
