Russia's Fernandes praises Salah

Thu, Jun. 21, 2018
CAIRO – 21 June 2018: Russia national team's defender, Mário Fernandes, expressed his admiration of Egyptian international winger, Mohamed Salah, after Russia's 3-1 victory over Egypt at the World Cup on Tuesday night.

“Mohamed Salah is a great player but we managed to stop him,” the Russian defender said after the game.




Russia opened the score after four minutes from the second half start through an own goal by Egypt's right back, Ahmed Fathy.
Denis Cheryshev doubled the score for the hosts 10 minutes later and Artem Dzyuba made the score 3-0.
Mohamed Salah, who missed the opening game against Uruguay as he failed to recover from his shoulder injury, scored Egypt’s only goal in the game 15 minutes before the final whistle through a penalty.
Russia became the first nation to reach the second round from two straight victories over Saudi Arabia and Egypt, respectively.

“Every game is important. We are going to play against Uruguay; we know that they are a great team and we are going to give our 100 per cent, like all the games,” Hernandes added.




Russia leads the group with six points while Egypt stays with 0 points at the bottom.
