Russia are on the brink of qualifying for the last 16 of World Cup.

The hosts beat Mo Salah’s Egypt 3-1 in Saint Petersburg last night, to make it two wins out of two in Group A.

Making his first appearance in the tournament after recovering from a shoulder injury, Salah scored a penalty, but is wasn’t enough for Egypt to avoid second successive defeat.

The Pharaohs’ will be eliminated from the competition if Saudi Arabia fail to beat Uruguay in Rostov today.

That would also secure Russia’s place in the knock out stages.
