25-year-old Salah scored twice for Egypt as they beat Congo 2-1 to secure their place at Russian Federation 2018, with his victor coming from the penalty spot in the fifth minute of stoppage time, sparking wild scenes.

Egypt went from deflation to elation after Congo equalised through Arnold Bouka-Moutou in the 88th minute, Salah having bagged the opener earlier in the second-half.

His dramatic victor sparked wild scenes of celebration both on and off the pitch, as several players and fans took to the field to celebrate while supporters wept with joy in the packed stands.

Rarely will the Liverpool player have felt such a sense of pressure with the conversion securing a first World Cup place for the North African nation since competing at Italia 90.

Egypt's coach Hector Cuper has revealed he is ready to face Congo in a major decider despite increasing pressure from nationals for him to prove his worth.

Egypt were awarded a 95th-minute spot-kick, and Salah held his nerve to find the back of the net and wrap up a historic win.

Should he play next year, Egypt goalkeeper El Hadary could become the oldest player at a World Cup ever.

Nigeria were the first African country to qualify for the tournament after they defeated Zambia on Saturday.
