World Cup

Day 12 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup – Spain and Portugal survive Group B

Day 12

Uruguay is perfect

Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani were on the scoresheet for Uruguay to top Group A and complete a perfect run – winning every match and not conceding a goal.

Mohamed Salah scored his second goal of the tournament, but it wasn’t enough to save Egypt from going pointless in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Saudi Arabia wins their first World Cup match since 1994 while Egypt remains winless at the World Cup.

Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El Hadary became the oldest player (45 years and 161 days) to take part in the World Cup. El Hadary’s first-half penalty save was what kept Egypt from losing by more than a goal against Saudi Arabia.
