The 2-1 defeat means Egypt's first World Cup appearance since 1990 ended with three defeats and the African nation is yet to win its first game at soccer's major tournament, having drawn two and lost five of the seven games it played over three World Cups.
"I just want to say that Egypt reached the World Cup after 28 years, some players here do not have the required experience".
And while both sides had already been eliminated ahead of Monday's game at the Volgograd Arena, the Green Falcons at least avoided the ignominy of finishing the campaign without a point as they overtook Egypt into third place in the group.
Salem Aldawsari scored with nearly the last kick, shooting from a tight angle inside the Egypt penalty area and poking the ball past El Hadary.
Mohamed Salah has apologised to Egypt's fans after their elimination from the World Cup Monday.
Mohamed Salah gave Egypt the lead in the 22nd minute with a delightful lob over the goalkeeper.
There have been suggestions that Salah will quit the Egypt team following the conclusion of the World Cup.
El-Hadary wasn't simply out on the field to set a record.
But Salman Al Faraj scored a spot-kick for Saudi Arabia seconds before half-time, just five minutes after El Hadary had saved Al Muwallad's effort, and Al Dawsari fired in the victor with seconds left to secure the Saudis' first World Cup win since 1994.
Saudi Arabia pressed for a victor in the second half but the game appeared to be heading for a 1-1 draw - which would have meant Egypt finished third in the group - until Abdullah Otayf teed up Al-Dawsari to angle his shot past El-Hadary.
Saudi Arabia fought back after falling behind to Mohamed Salah's second FIFA World Cup goal to claim a 2-1 win over Egypt in their final Group A game of Russian Federation 2018.
El Hadary overtook Faryd Mondragon as the oldest person to play at the World Cup. It was the Asians who prevailed through to record their first ever victory in a World Cup since 1994.
