FIFA World Cup 2018 Simulation | Group A | Russia – Egypt | (FIFA 18)
Group A Table
Team GP GD Pts
Uruguay 1 4-1 3
Saudi Arabia 1 3-2 3
Russia 1 2-3 0
Egypt 1 1-4 0
Russia 2-3 Saudi Arabia
Egypt 1-4 Uruguay
Egypt and Russia lost their opening games making this a must-win for both teams, a loss for either of the teams and the chance to make the play-offs might be gone after two games.
Russia was definately the most disappointed with the opening game, earning a shocking loss to Saudi Arabia after conceding a third goal in stoppage time. Head Coach Stanislav Cherchesov and his team now has huge pressure on their shoulders and are in need of a victory here to not be seen as a huge failure in this tournament.
Egypt, although not happy with conceding 4 goals against a good Uruguay side definately see their chance in this game against a host nation buckling under the pressure and expectations from the home crowd.
Beautiful city St. Petersburg and the Kraskovsky Stadium hosts this thrilling match-up.
