Soccer-Egypt and Saudi level at half-time after Salah strike, penalty

VOLGOGRAD, Russia, June 25 (Reuters) - Egyptian talisman Mohamed Salah scored with a lob in the 22nd minute before Saudi Arabia’s Salman Al-Faraj levelled the score at 1-1 by half-time from the penalty spot in Monday’s Group A game, the last match of the tournament for the two already-eliminated teams.

The Saudis were awarded a first penalty before half-time, but Egyptian keeper Essam El-Hadary - who became the oldest player ever to appear at a World Cup - saved Fahad Al-Muwallad’s shot. When a second penalty was awarded minutes later, however, Al-Faraj scored from the spot. (Reporting by Alexandra Ulmer Editing by Hugh Lawson)
