Egypt fans world over suffered heartbreak as they fell to the Russians 3-1 in the second round of group stage matches in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.

The hosts were able to overcome the Pharaohs with three goals in 15 minutes, which gave them the three points and virtually a spot in the Round of 16s.

The first goal came early in the second half as Egypt captain Ahmed Fathi tried to clear away from his box but the ball tragically trickled past the Egypt goal keeper and into the net for an own goal, the fifth own goal so far in this competition.

The next goal came after 12 minutes from Dennis Cheryshev and the last goal game from Russian striker Artem Dzybua as he showed tremendous skill to handle two defenders and still get a shot away.

Egypt were able to score a consolation goal through their star player Mohamed Salah who scored from the spot to give Egypt something to cheer about.

Fans all over took to Twitter to voice their frustration at the tragic loss.

Numerous tweets were posted about how the team should have played and how underwhelming the performance was, even with Mo Salah starting the game.
