Despite having won four African Cup of Nation's since last competing in a World Cup, Egypt have flattered to deceive when it came to World Cup qualifying, making their achievements of today all the more special for their current crop, of which Salah is the star.

Mohamed Salah scored with a last-gasp penalty to book Egypt a place in the World Cup finals for the first time in 28 years as they edged Congo 2-1 in their dramatic Group E qualifier on Sunday.

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.

The euphoria was intense since Arnold Bouka-Moutou had stunned the hosts when equalising for Congo after 88 minutes.

They had suffered repeated heart-break instead, with one of the most painful defeats coming in 2009 when losing a bitterly-contested play-off against Algeria.

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.

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

Egypt now have a four point lead over Uganda in their group, cementing top spot with just one game left for each side.

The celebrations nearly got too much for goalkeeper Essam El Hadary.
