Cesc Fàbregas: Saudi Arabia and Egypt are the worst teams in Russia
The Spanish midfielder has not been impressed by the two Group A teams’ performances thus far labeling Egypt and Saudi Arabia as “the two worst teams in the World Cup by a distance.”
Both Arab nations suffered losses in their first two games and have officially been knocked out from the competition. Egypt suffered a heartbreaking 89th minute loss to Uruguay on June 15 before losing to Russia 3-1 on June 19. Mohamed Salah scored Egypt’s lone goal from the spot.
Saudi Arabia were picked apart by Russia and lost 5-0 in the opening match of the World Cup. Like Egypt, the Green Falcons lost 1-0 to Uruguay on June 20. The result officially knocked out both Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
“As you know, this can happen at the highest levels when there is a big difference in the levels,” Fàbregas expanded.
Egypt will face Saudi Arabia on Monday June 25 in their final group stage match.
