    #RUS 3-1 #EGY. Russia have a habit of actually scoring when they’re on top—something few sides have actually managed in this tournament. Dzyuba is a handful, and he’s serviced very well. #WorldCup

  43. Clock Icon7:56 pm

    Karl Matchett @karlmatchett

    #RUSEGY #RUS well played, basically. Absolutely hammered it for a 10-15 min spell when opposition fell apart, ruthless and clinical. Dzyuba goal superb, Ignashevic good all game at back. #EGY awful defensive spell, can't lose the mentality like that and expect to survive. Out.

    Unexpected, impressive, almost complete. Russia within touching distance of the last 16.

    Gary Lineker @GaryLineker

    Russia’s start is the best of any host nation in the history of the World Cup after the 2 opening games. Italy also scored 8 in 1934 but conceded 2.

    Most of Russia and particularly the media didn’t give them hope of getting out of the group. Hats off to them for doing it with a game to spare and for doing it in style. Gives everyone a real lift.

    Warda shanks one wide horribly, and there perhaps goes Egypt's final chance of another comeback goal.

    Charles Boehm @cboehm

    Momentum shifts are natural in a game like this but Russia made the most of a relatively brief period of control - Egypt just could not afford to let their focus drop so drastically and disastrously when things ebbed away from them.

    Egypt still pushing forward but lacking ideas. Salah has a go but it's deflected over.

    4 - Mohamed Salah's goal means that the @premierleague Golden Boot winner has scored in each of the last four subsequent #WorldCup tournaments: 2006: Thierry Henry (3 Goals) 2010: Didier Drogba (1) 2014: Luis Suarez (2) 2018: Mohamed Salah (1) Kings. #RUSEGY

    Smolov gets booked for ridiculously pulling back Kahraba for about 10 metres. Russia constantly looking to hit on the counter-attack now.

    Golovin should be in for a fourth, but hesitates and loses possession. Time running down for Egypt's improbable comeback.

    3 - Mohamed Salah is the third different player to score for Egypt at the #WorldCup, after Abdelrahman Fawzi (1934) and Magdy Abed El Ghani (1990). Trio. #EGY #RUSEGY https://t.co/DJFyEvLJTA
