Final thoughts
Assuming that Uruguay are able to beat Saudi Arabia in their match tomorrow, the South American and European teams will be the two advancing from this group. Thank you for tuning in to our live coverage, and we hope to see you tomorrow for another round of World Cup 2018 action!
90'
Egyptian sadness
On the other side of the coin, Egypt will be crushed, and will surely be asking if they should have risked bringing in Salah during their game against Uruguay. While they were able to take a couple attacks to Russia, the host side looking more-or-less in control during the entire match, and Mo Salah had a tough time finding his feet in his first game back from injury.
90'
Russia looking hopeful
Another comprehensive victory for the Russians, and six points from their first two games will all but assure they pass to the knockout rounds of this tournament, the first time ever since the breakup of the Soviet Union.

Zobnin holds on to Salah as he's making on to the box, and the Liverpool man goes down. Originally whistled outside of the box, VAR reviews the play and the call is changed to be inside of the box. Penalty for Egypt!
69'
Salah not on form
A Russian turnover leads to a 3v2 opportunity for the Egyptians, but Salah isn't able to control the pass that's played to him and the ball goes back to the Russians. Salah has definitely not looked 100% in this match, and it's been a tough first game back since his injury.

Dzyuba with the goal this time!
The long ball played in from the free kick inside the Russia half goes all the way to Dzyuba in the Egyptian box. The big man makes a gargantuan effort to hold off the Egyptian defenders and bring the ball down on his chest, before taking a deft touch around a second Russian defender and passing the ball calmly into the back of the net, beating El Shenawy at his near post.

GOAL FOR CHERYSHEV!!! 2-0!!!
59'
More Russian Opportunities
Because of the numbers that the Egyptians have been forced to push forward, the Russians are finding more joy on the counter-attack than they did in the first half. Samedov is once again able to swing in a ball towards Dzyuba, but Hegazi is able to clear the danger.
59'
Goal
Denis Cheryshev. Assist by Mario Fernandes (Russia)

Chance for Salah!
The ball falls to Salah after a flick on from Mohsen, the forward takes one touch too many and his shot is blocked from close range.
50'
Egypt trying to get one back
Egypt are now attacking frantically, as Salah has dropped into the middle to try to be more involved in play.
47'
What a strange goal!
After the ball is punched away by El Shenawy, Zobnin received the ball and tries to hit a volley first time. His effort isn't excellent, but Fathi goes for the block and ends up putting the ball into the back of his own net! The fifth Own Goal of this tournament!

45'
Teams re-entering!
The teams are coming back onto the pitch now, and neither side has opted for a change.
45'
Egypt need to take control
Egypt will have to push the issue in this second half - perhaps they'll try to increase Salah's influence on the game, as the Russians did a good job of limiting his touches in the first half.
45'
Half-time Thoughts
While the Russians have had far more attacks than their adversaries, they will actually be the side that goes into the locker rooms happier, as a draw is still not a bad result for them. The Egyptians, however, need a win from this game in order to have any sort of realistic shot of getting into the knockout rounds of this tournament.
45'
End of the first half!
The first half ends with no stoppage time, and the two teams will go into the break level. While the hosts have had more attacks in total, the Egyptians have caused the Russian defense some trouble and there's only been one total shot on goal between the two teams.
41'
First big chance for Salah!
A quick pass played in from Abdelshafy is dummied by Mohsen to allow Salah to get on the ball. After getting the ball on his left foot, the danger man takes a snap shot with his left foot that goes just wide of the post
38'
Better from Egypt
Nice play from Egypt as Salah and Mohsen lead the counterattack up the pitch. The ball eventually comes to Elneny, who chips a ball into the box for Mohsen – the forward is whistled offside, however.
35'
El Shenawy grabs again
Though his distribution has been lacking at times, El Shenawy has been excellent coming out to claim the ball when it is played in high – he knows that crosses to Dzyuba are dangerous, and he's doing a stellar job coming out to grab high balls when he can.
33'
Close!
An outside of the foot cross by Abdelshafy is flick on by Mohsen – Mo Salah is on the end of the flick but the Russian defender gets there just before the Liverpool man and is able to clear the ball behind.
27'
Cross after Cross
Russia know that they can cause the Egyptian defense a lot of headache on crosses into the box, and Golovin tries to whip a ball in to find target-man Dzyuba, but the ball is just past the 6'5” forward.
25'
Opening up
The game is starting to open up a bit, as both teams have started to commit more players to the attack.
19'
Thunderous effort!
After a Yuri Zhirkov free kick that's cleared by the Egyptians, the ball finds Cheryshev at the top of the box. The Russian danger man fakes once before setting himself and unleashing a deadly effort that sails just over the top of the goal. Another warning shot fired by the Russians.
16'
Curling effort!
Another giveaway by Russia this time leads to a quick break from Egypt, led by Trezeguet. Instead of passing, the Egyptian forward opts for the curling right-footed effort which wraps just outside of the post. Better from Egypt!
14'
Egyptian pressure
Egypt finally mounting some attacks, and a cool flick from Said eventually leads to an Egyptian corner kick. The resulting corner is swung in and almost leads to an own-goal, as Fernandes heads just behind.
12'
Another Russian chance
A long ball played into Fernandes on the right side is eventually laid off to Samedov, who eventually whips a ball into the box for Dzyuba to receive. The forward brings the ball down but his touch is heavy and the ball rolls to El Shenawy.
8'
Russian Corner
Samedov stands over a free kick on the left side for the Russians, but his cross is cleared behind by Marwan.
7'
Russians in control
The Egyptians have really not yet found their feet in this match, with most of the traffic being one-way in the direction of El Shenawy's goal.
6'
Golovin Shot!
Another giveaway in defense leads to another Russian counter-attack, but Golovin is once again unable to capitalize on the Egyptian errors.
4'
Russian attack
This time it's Hegazi who gives up the foul, and the Russians attack quickly up the left side. A blocked cross leads to a long-shot, which is deflected behind for a Russian corner.
2'
Foul on Dzyuba
Dzyuba tries to win the ball from Abdelshafy, but pulls his shirt and play is called back for a foul.
1'
Almost!
A careless giveaway on a crossfield ball by the Egyptians gifts the Russians the ball in the middle of the pitch, but Golovin is unable to find Dzyuba with his pass into the box.
1'
And we're off!
Egypt start with the ball and we're out of the gates!

Key Points for Russia
Russia won their last game with the most convincing score-line of the entire tournament, thrashing Saudi Arabia 5-0. Manager Stanislav Cherchesov and his men will hope that they can carry that momentum into this game, as a win against Egypt would take immense pressure off of them in their last group game against Uruguay.
0'
Egyptian Difference-Maker
The big news for this game is obviously the return of Mohamed Salah for Egypt – the Liverpool star player was unable to make his debut in Egypt's first match against Uruguay, where the South American team was able to snatch a late winner. Salah and the Egyptians will hope that his presence will be able to make the difference in this match, using his pace to torment the rather slow Russian back-line.
