Late Salah goal fires Egypt to Russian Federation

Supporters of Egypt attend the World Cup 2018 Africa qualifying football match

An stoppage-time penalty from Mohamed Salah indeed ensured the Pharaohs qualification for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

Congo nearly ruined Egypt's World Cup party, after Boukah Moulou cancelled Mohammed Salah's 64th minute goal in the 87th minute but a late penalty scored by Salah made things go back to normal for the egyptian nation.

They are now top of Group E with 12 points, while their closest rivals, Uganda have eight points after being held at home to a goalless draw by Ghana in Kampala on Saturday.

Three more tickets are left to be picked by other African teams.

Catalan officials say the poll , which Spain insists was illegal and invalid, shows that a majority who voted favour secession. Officers from the national police and paramilitary Civil Guard seized ballot papers and boxes at a number of polling stations.

Salah opened the scoring in the 63rd minute on Sunday evening, but his effort was cancelled out by Arnold Bouka Moutou two minutes from the end of regular time. Fans honking auto horns and waving Egypt's red, white and black flags took the streets across the country.

The game ended 2-1 in favour of the North Africans. In Cairo, an army helicopter dropped hundreds of Egyptian flags on thousands of fans gathered at the city's iconic Tahrir square. During this drought the Pharaohs have won four Africa Cup of Nations titles (1998, 2006, 2008 and 2010) but they haven't been able to mirror this success in World Cup qualification.

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

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.
