Volgograd: Salem Al Dawsari 's strike deep in added time ensured Saudi Arabia ended their 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Group A campaign with a 2-1 win over Egypt at the Volgograd Arena on Monday.
Essam El Hadary, the oldest player ever to appear at a World Cup, marked his record achievement with one outstanding penalty save for Egypt but was powerless to stop a second Fahad Al-Muwallad's spot-kick, awarded for handball, at the Volgograd Arena.
But Saudi Arabia's Al-Dawsari's last-gasp winner secured their first World Cup victory since a run to the last 16 in 1994.
Mohamed Salah's Egypt still have not recorded a World Cup Finals win in three appearances, despite the Liverpool talisman's superb opening goal.
