The first half of the meeting began with a scouting battle, when already in the second minute of the match Artem Dzyuba could score in the goal of Mohamed El-Shanavi, if he had adjusted himself for a penetrating pass into the penalty area, performed by Denis Cheryshev. However, the Egyptians did not take long to wait and probing a slightly more slow Sergei Ignashevich time after time began to load the central zone of the Russian defense with long transfers behind their backs, as well as crosses into the penalty area, counting on the actions of the outboard forward Marvan Mohsen, but the insurance of the Russian team worked perfectly and the first half of the meeting ended in a battle draw - 0: 0. Second time, following the instructions of Cherchesov, the Russian team, without delaying the case in a long box, scored a quick, albeit somewhat curious, ball when Egyptian captain Ahmed Fathi cut the ball into his own net after a commotion in the penalty area. After the goal, the game somewhat calmed down and the Russians after a lightning attack, ending with the transfer of Mario Fernandez in the penalty area issued a double superiority over the team of "Pharaohs". Denis Cheryshev, who scored his third goal in the World Championship, distinguished himself in this way with the best scorer of the tournament at the moment, the forward of the national team of Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo. A few minutes later, before the Egyptians left the shock, Artem Dzyuba hammered the ball into the net and formalized the rout of "Salah and Co." 3: 0 on the 62nd minute of the meeting. Cherchesov urged his charges to calm down, anticipating the massive offensive of the Egyptian national team, which eventually resulted in a violation of the leader of the "pharaohs" Mohamed Salah, who was so afraid of Russian experts and fans. Sam suffered a penalty and realized, depriving Igor Akinfeev next dry match. But on this luck for the Egyptian national team was over and the Russian team confidently brought the match to victory: 3 -1.
