A very Late penalty gave Egypt a ticket to Russian Federation

An injury-time penalty from Mohamed Salah gave Egypt a 2-1 victory over Congo, and secured their position at the top of Group E with one game to go, sealing their qualification to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.

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.

However, the Pharaohs were awarded a penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
