Soccer Football- 2018 World Cup Qualifications – Africa- Egypt vs Uganda- Alexandria Egypt

They may not be the golden generation of Abu-Trika and Co., and they may not be the current kings of Africa, but they will always be the squad that ended the bitterest drought in the history of Egyptian sport.

Egypt became the second African nation to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after defeating Congo 2-1 on Sunday evening.

The national team is meeting with Egypt's president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, and all players are set to receive 1.5 million Egyptian pounds ($85,000). We won because of the team's determination.

Salah broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute when he latched on to a through pass from midfielder Mohamed Elneny of Arsenal. Salah stepped up and converted the spot-kick to secure the victory.

The last round of qualifiers will take place in November with Congo hosting Uganda and Egypt traveling to Ghana.

It will be the African countries' first since 1990 and understandably Twitter reacted with joy to the spine tingling performance put in by Salah.

Salah will face Manchester United on the 14th in a huge game.

The match itself in Alexandria on Sunday was a rather boring affair with Egypt very cagey in attack as they opted to defend in numbers to avoid defeat.

Egypt's last appearance at the World Cup came in 1990, when they were drawn against England, the Republic of Ireland and the Netherlands in Group F in Italy.

Fans were reduced to tears when Salah netted his penalty.

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

Three African tickets are still up for grabs in groups A, C and D. Winners will emerge during the next worldwide break between 10-14 of November, 2017.

Egypt manager Hector Cuper confirmed that he'll remain in his position as the Pharaohs coach during the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

"Did you see what you have done to Egyptians in just over an hour?" el-Sissi told the squad on Monday.
