June 26, 2018 01:39

Russia's impressive start to the World Cup ended as they had a man sent off and were easily defeated by Uruguay, whose victory means they top Group A. Mohamed Salah scored his second goal of the World Cup but Egypt ended their campaign pointless with defeat by Saudi Arabia at Volgograd Arena. Portugal progressed to the World Cup knockout stages after drawing with Iran in a game full of VAR controversy. Iago Aspas scored a stoppage-time equaliser as Spain scraped an unconvincing draw with Morocco to top Group B and secure a last-16 tie against World Cup hosts Russia.
