Mohammed Salah Stoppage Time Strike Takes Egypt To 2018 World Cup

World Cup Qualifier: Egypt to miss injured trio for Congo clash

Congo (4-2-3-1): Mouko, Badila, Etou, Itoua, Mayembo, N'Dinga, Oniangue, Bahamboula (Ndockyt 84), Bifouma, Saint-Louis (Gandze 90+2), Delarge (Moutou 71).

Here's what the scene looked like in the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria when Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot to book his team's place at Russian Federation 2018.

However, late on, Arnold Bouka-Moutou equalised for the hosts to stun the home fans.

Egypt has qualified for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation after beating Republic of Congo 2-1 at home on Sunday.

A scoreless first half raised the nerves in Alexandria but Salah's first of the night put one Egyptian foot in Russian Federation.

Hopes were raised as five minutes of stoppage time were indicated and in the penultimate of these, Egypt were awarded a penalty.




The last time Egypt reached the World Cup, the tournament featured four countries that don't even exist anymore, such has been the length of their absence.

Their Argentina-born coach Hector Cuper had admitted the pressure to end their absence had seen him take medication for high blood pressure.

They remain on top of the group with 12 points, gaining an unassailable four-point lead over Uganda.

Should he play next year, Egypt goalkeeper El Hadary could become the oldest player at a World Cup ever.

Earlier this year, the North Africans - whose first World Cup appearance was way back in 1934 - finished runners-up in the Africa Cup of Nations.
