Despite a noticeable increase in performance in the 2nd group game against Uruguay, Saudi Arabia once again lost - 0:1, as a loser and may safely start the journey home after the preliminary round. Although the "Saudis", who have come as a blatant outsider, so that at this World Cup still brought no point and scored no one goal, the Uruguay game should still be a catalyst for the final act today. Juan Antonio Pizzi's team had 90 minutes more possession than the South Americans - 53%, played more passes - 548 in total and even had a more accurate pass rate - 87%. Only in the last third did the "Green Hawks" lack their power and creativity. However, this is not really surprising, because the harmless offensive accompanied the men from the desert state for a while.
Despite the recovery of Mohamed Salah, the men from the realm of the pyramids also lost the 2nd group event with 1:3 against Russia and therefore have no chance on the K.O. phase. As for the upcoming opponent from Saudi Arabia it is therefore on Monday for the North Africans only for the honour. At least the defence of third place against the neighbour should be the goal. The past balance is optimistic. So far, both nations have faced each other so far and only once did the "Pharaohs" lose out as five wins were celebrated.
