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.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah converted a stoppage-time penalty to give Egypt a 2-1 win over Congo on Sunday and a place at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.
