Russia vs Egypt
FIFA World Cup 2018 – Group A
Date: Tuesday, 19th June 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 GMT +2
Venue: Saint Petersburg Stadium.
Having bagged a massive win in the tournament opener, Russia eye another scalp when they welcome Egypt for the second Group A game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The hosts put themselves in front foot with a 5-0 win against Saudi Arabia in the opening game of the World Cup 2018 and could become the first team to qualify for the round of 16 with a win against Egypt on Tuesday evening.
The Pharaohs on the other hand, worked so hard against Uruguay and seemed to have salvaged a point before a later header from Atletico Madrid defender José Maria Gimenez sent them to a 1-0 defeat. Their second Group A game against Russia is vital and nothing less than a win will keep them in the race for round of 16 qualification.
A Russia win on Tuesday combined with Uruguay avoiding a defeat against Saudi Arabia will send the hosts to the round of 16. If Egypt bag three points, then they remain in the competition, but may still need a big win against Saudi Arabia in the final group game.
The two teams from Group A, Russia and Egypt are meeting for the first time in a competitive football game.
The Hosts, Russia walloped Egypt in their opening group fixture.
Egypt are coming from the back drop of a last minute defeat at the hands of Uruguay.
