Salah Fires Egypt To First World Cup Since 1990

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah converted a stoppage-time penalty to give Egypt a dramatic 2-1 win over Congo Brazzaville on Sunday and a place at the 2018 Soccer World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Congolese almost ruined Egypt's World Cup hopes, after Boukah Moulou cancelled Mohammed Salah's 64th minute goal in the 87th minute.

With one game to play they top African Group E by four points, and are the second team from the African qualifiers to book their ticket to Russian Federation after Nigeria.

A defensive blunder allowed constant menace Salah to fire past goalkeeper Barel Mouko on 63 minutes at the 85 000-capacity Borg El Arab Stadium.

With just three minutes left, Congo equalised through Moutou.

Egypt's star Mohamed Salah scored the first goal during the match's 62 minute before Congo equalized at the 82nd minute.

The desperation to qualify ahead of the game was so great that Egypt's Argentinian coach Hector Cuper admitted he was taking medication for high blood pressure. The 44-year-old have played over 150 times for his country and never reached a World Cup despite making his debut in 1996.

Their last group fixture is an inconsequential game away to Ghana while Congo will entertain Uganda.

The win clinched Egypt a long-awaited spot in Russian Federation for the 2018 World Cup finals, where the Arab world's most populous country will compete on football's ultimate stage for the first time since Italy in 1990.
