CAIRO – 24 June 2018: It’s official now; all Arab teams are out of the 2018 World Cup after the end of the second round of the group stage with one game left for each team.

The Russian World Cup witnessed the participation of four Arab teams; Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Morocco, but their journey ended by the second round.

They didn’t even get a single point as they lost all their games in the three groups. But we guarantee that Arab teams can get at least one point when Egypt faces Saudi Arabia on Monday.
