It will be the swansong for Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Monday, as the countries play in their Group A finales having already been eliminated from advancing to the knockout stage in the tournament.
It’s been rough sledding for both teams, as Saudi Arabia lost 5-0 to host country Russia and 1-0 to Uruguay so far, and Egypt, expected by many to advance at the expense of Russia, losing 1-0 to Uruguay and 3-1 to Russia. So if nothing else, this game will give the two teams a chance to end the tournament on a high note.
One thing to keep an eye on from a Los Angeles Football Club perspective will be to see if midfielder/defender Omar Gaber will see the field in this match. Gaber has been an unused substitute so far for Egypt — it would be nice to see him get some time, here’s hoping he’ll get some action in Russia on Monday.
