El-Hadary discusses Saudi Arabia clash, chances of breaking World Cup record
Egypt veteran keeper Essam El-Hadary said the Pharaohs will fight to achieve victory over Saudi Arabia in their last game at the World Cup.
In case El-Hadary featured in Egypt’s last World Cup game against Saudi Arabia on Monday, he’ll become the oldest player to feature at the finals, breaking the record of former Colombia keeper Faryd Mondragon.

“I’ll continue to serve my country whether I played or not,” El-Hadary told MBC Masr satellite channel, stressing that his participation depends on the technical staff’s decision.
“The Saudi Arabia game is very important to us. We will fight to achieve victory and get Egypt’s first ever World Cup win,” the 45-year-old keeper added.
The Pharaohs and the Green Falcons both exited the World Cup after losing to Uruguay and Russia, who both secured their qualification to the round of 16, which makes their final Group A game in Volgograd a dead rubber.
