Egyptian school renamed after Mohamed Salah

Egypt's Mohamed Salah vies for the ball against Congo's Tobias Badila during their World Cup 2018 Africa qualifying match between Egypt and Congo at the Borg el-Arab stadium in Alexandria on 8 October, 2017.

"This is what I thought about after the Congo goal; that we must react to the shock".

The Liverpool winger opened the scoring for Egypt in the 62nd minute before scoring a last-gasp penalty that earned the Pharaohs their qualification to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.

The win sent hundreds of thousands of fans across Egypt celebrating, honking vehicle horns and waving the country's red, white and black flags.

After Nigeria became the first African country to qualify for Russian Federation 2018 world cup after beating Zambia 1:0 though in a controversial way, Egypt followed suit. I'm proud I made the Egyptians happy by scoring today twice against Congo.

That turmoil affected the team, too, with the record seven-time African champion failing to qualify for three straight African Cups from 2012-2015 before making a return this year.

Egypt has become the second African country after Nigeria to secure its place in the FIFA World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

"Maybe we don't play handsome football but we are at the World cup and that's the most important thing", Cuper said.

Egypt gained an unassailable four-point lead over Uganda at the top of Group E with one match remaining.
