Mohamed Salah not leaving World Cup early - Egypt FA

After Russia's big win over Egypt, the FC crew assess what's going right for the hosts and reflect on Egypt's choice to rest Mo Salah vs. Uruguay.
The hosts Russia continue their fine World Cup form, Japan beat 10-man Colombia and Senegal become the first African nation to win at the 2018 World Cup.

Mohamed Salah will not leave the World Cup early despite Egypt's elimination from the competition with one group game remaining, the country's Football Association has said.

Africa showing few signs of World Cup breakthrough

Not even a win for Senegal in their first Group H in Moscow on Tuesday could temper an otherwise disaster-filled opening six days of the tournament for African hopes.

Five defeats in the six games featuring African teams offered little hope of new benchmarks being set, with Senegal's 2-1 triumph over Poland the only bright...

Egypt underperform as Russia all but end World Cup hopes

Egypt were beaten 3-1 by Russia in their second World Cup outing as Hector Cuper's side stand on the brink of an early elimination.

The Pharaohs started tentatively, but grew into the game, although they collapsed in the second half and appeared unable to cope with the hosts after falling behind.

Positives

Offensively, there were spells in which Egypt looked more adventurous - and more menacing - going forward than they ever did in their opener against Uruguay.

Mohamed Salah also appeared not to...
