Our prediction for this World Cup 2018 match:
Saudi Arabia and Egypt face each other at Volgograd Arena in their last group game at 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. The two teams failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament, but they will surely give 100% in order to finish the campaign with a victory. Egypt key player Mohamed Salah has overcome his injury and we predict that he is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders in Monday’s football match. Saudi Arabia experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the 5-0 loss to Russia in the opening match of their 2018 World Cup campaign and we do not believe that they are capable of making life difficult for the Pharaohs. In previous two meetings between the two teams Egypt emerged triumphant, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Mohamed Salah and Co.

Speaking of his career at Villarreal, the Saudi footballer made his debut for the Yellow Submarine against Real Madrid in the 2017/2018 season finale. Al-Dawsari substituted Javi Fuego in 57th minute of the match and it has to be noted that he was shown a yellow card in the stoppage time.

In May 2018 Al-Dawsari was named in Saudi Arabia’s preliminary squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. As previously mentioned, his main position is winger, but the 171-cm-tall footballer can be used as a secondary striker as well.
Highlighted Team (Egypt):
Egypt are an African football team that plays their home games at Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria. Over the years Egypt have established themselves as the most successful national team in Africa and you should bear in mind that they won their seventh African Cup of Nations trophy in 2010.
The Pharaohs participated at the World Cup finals on two occasions (1934 and 1990) and they failed to make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament. Egypt suffered a 4-2 loss to Hungary on their World Cup debut and it has to be noted that the African team scored no more than one goal at the 1990 FIFA World Cup.
Ahmed Hassan is the player with the most caps for the Egyptian national team (184), while Hossam Hassan is the team’s top scorer (68). The colour of Egypt’s home kit is red and white and the Pharaohs play their away games in white shits and black shorts.
