Egypt Qualify For 2018 FIFA World Cup

Egypt has picked the second of five slots allocated to African countries for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Pharaohs qualified courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty converted by Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah for a dramatic 2-1 win over Congo Brazzaville.

Salah put Egypt ahead during the second half in Alexandria only for Arnold Bouka Moutou to equalise two minutes from the end of regular time.

Egypt, with the win, top Group E with four points between them and second-placed Uganda with just a round of games to go.
