Mohamed Salah scored his second goal of the World Cup but Egypt ended their campaign pointless with defeat by Saudi Arabia at Volgograd Arena.
The Liverpool forward gave Egypt the lead with a brilliant lob over keeper Yasser Al-Mosailem in the 22nd minute.
Egypt’s Essam El Hadary, 45, became the oldest player to feature at a World Cup and saved Fahad Al Muwallad’s penalty.
However, he could not stop Salman Al Faraj’s spot-kick and was beaten again by Salem Al Dawsari with seconds left.
A fantastic penalty save and two good reaction saves from second-half headers – he might have ended up on the losing side but both he and his country will remember his World Cup debut for years to come
The injury that forced Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah to leave the pitch 30 minutes into the Champions League final has stirred widespread online anger among Egyptians.
Egyptian Salah sustained an injury to his left shoulder after Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos grabbed his arm while both were tussling for the ball.
Salah, who left the pitch in tears, broke the heart of many fans who showed him their love and support on social media.
Several Arabic hashtags supportive of Salah and furious at Ramos were trending after the match, garnering thousands of tweets.
Many users, in posts with the #Ramosthedog (14.9K tweets) and #Ramostheanimal (47.9K tweets), considered the injury as no accident.
“No player goes down clutching the players arm like this. It was intentional. He deserves to get banned,” @MemoK896 tweeted.
Expressing a similar view, Syrian @Ismail_hajOsman said: “He did it on purpose.”
“I’ve never seen Egyptians this furious in my entire life. Oh Ramos! what have you done?” @EmanMohy74 tweeted.
“Egyptians coming for Ramos if Salah misses the World Cup like…” @Boshkaaaaa threatened.
Mohamed Salah was named Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year on Sunday. Two days later, he established himself as one of the best in Europe. Next step: the world?
On a memorable European night at Anfield, the Egyptian scored twice and made two more goals as Liverpool routed Roma 5-2 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.
He now has 43 goals in 47 appearances this season – a record that does not look out of place next to the elite attacking players in the game: Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.
And there have been calls for him to be the next winner of the most prestigious individual accolade in world football.

Mohamed Salah has won the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award for 2017-18.
The Liverpool forward, 25, beat Kevin de Bruyne, Harry Kane, Leroy Sane, David Silva and David de Gea in the vote by his fellow players.
Manchester City’s Sane won the young player prize, while Chelsea’s Fran Kirby won the Women’s Player of the Year award.
Bristol City’s Lauren Hemp was named Women’s Young Player of the Year.
“It’s an honour and especially as it’s voted by the players. I am happy and proud,” Salah said.
“I didn’t have my chance at Chelsea. It was clear I would return and show everyone my football. I think I left and came back a different person, man and player. I am happy and proud.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he was “happy to have the opportunity” of being Salah’s manager and added it was an “unbelievable honour” to win the award.
