Warda defends coaching staff, teammates after disappointing World Cup campaign

Saudi Arabia Uruguay World Cup 2018

There is only pride to play for at the Volgograd Arena on Monday, with both competing teams having already been knocked out of the competition.

Saudi Arabia and Egypt will try to avoid finishing last in Group A as they bow out of the World Cup on Monday, a disappointing end to the tournament in particular for Egypt and their usually prolific striker Mohamed Salah.

The 24-year-old, who featured against Uruguay and Russian Federation, promised the fans that the players will exert all efforts to defeat the Green Falcons in the dead rubber on Monday at the Volgograd Arena, as a win against Saudi Arabia would mark Egypt's first ever World Cup victory.

Egypt's tournament has been a fairytale turned horror story with the injury saga of their key player Mohamed Salah.
