Match of the second day of Group A of the World Cup of Russia.
Russia comes from beating Saudi 5-0, easy match, against the worst team in the competition (probably), first round could not measure strength of the hosts, today is the true test. It was one of the big surprises of the first matchday. Too easy.
Egypt was defeated by Uruguay, had to defend the most part of the time. However left very good feelings as a team, despite contribution without Salah talisman, top player of Egypt. Faraons have a lot of good players that can play modern football.
In this duel it will become clear whether the Russians won the first game only because the opponent was so weak or they are stronger than public think? It will be seen if Mo Salah can make the difference and if Egypt can become a serious opponent with him. The Egyptians need victory, but they can not risk too much, otherwise they are already out. Sbornaya, on the other hand, is likely to get over the fans' euphoria, but has to deliver again.
Less care about final result I do believe that hosts of the Mundial will find themselves in more scoring opportunities.
