Saudi Arabia have gone top of Group F after an entertaining 0-0 draw (honest!) with Ghana, knowing a point against Italy next Thursday will see them progress through to the last sixteen for the first time since 1994.

Yaser Al-Qhatani twice came close for the Asian side, but it was a day where goalkeepers shone brightest, Larsen Kwarasey making two fine point-blank saves to keep a clean sheet.

Ghana’s PSV Eindhoven centre-back Isaac Vorsah won the man-of-the-match award for his performance,  while Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah was cautioned early on and will be suspended for the Italy clash.
