Football fans react to the just-concluded match between Saudi Arabi and Egypt, where a totally inexperienced Saudi Arabia, defeated Egypt in a 2-1 victory. Egypt’s goal was won by Mo Salah.
Both teams are going home, as their performance has been rather unimpressive from the get-go, and World Cup enthusiasts who love a good sport cannot wait to see them leave.
But it is worth noting that in the 38th minute, a Fathy handball meant that Saudi Arabia had a penalty, and Egypt’s 45-year-old goalkeeper Essam El Hadary had the chance to be a hero. And he took it. The oldest player to play in a World Cup saved a penalty.
See what Twitter has to say about the game:
An early exit for Saudi Arabia. Despite an Al Faraj goal it will remain that way.

Age is but a number.
The World Cup's oldest player ever saves Saudi Arabia's first penalty and is immediately swamped by his #EGY teammates.
