Egypt bow out of Russia 2018 after Uruguay victory over Saudis

Uruguay and Russia have progressed from group stage leaving Saudi Arabia and Egypt no chance.

The five times champions of Africa have bowed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with one game to spare.

Egypt lost 3-1 against Russia on Tuesday and despite their hopes of progressing dwindling, they were still not out and were looking forward to see the Saudis upset the two times World champions, but they got disappointed as Uruguay won 1-0.

This is the end of the road for Egypt who entered into the World Cup with African footballer of the Year, Mohamed Salah, but things didn’t go their way as they lost their first two games against Uruguay and Russia.

Morocco who were the first country to fail to progress from the group stage have been joined by Saudi Arabia and Egypt
