Hello and welcome to the live score updates of Russia versus Egypt.
Russia will lock horns with Egypt in their second match of the FIFA World Cup 2018, Russia. Pressure would be on Egypt as they lost their opening encounter against Uruguay 1-0. Star striker Mohamed Salah who missed their last encounter would be back and that would surely boost Egypt’s chances.
On the other hand, hosts Russia would be brimming with confidence after they thrashed Saudi Arabia in the opening game of the tournament 5-0 at the Luzhniki Stadium.
The match will be played at the St. Petersburg stadium.
In all likelihood, Denis Cheryshev, who successfully replaced Dzagoev against Saudi Arabia, will start on the left from their point of view, and Aleksandr Golovin will play in the number 10 position.
