The Pharoahs of Egypt have qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia after a thrilling 2-1 victory over Congo at Borg El Arab Stadium on Sunday.

Striker struck just after the hour mark and Egypt were on their way to Russia 2018 but a late leveler from Dijon's Arnold Bouka Moutou took the scenario down to the final match of qualifying.

 

However a penalty at the death saw Egypt through, with the Reds star stepping up for his country.

The win puts Egypt four points ahead of second-placed Uganda in African qualifying's Group E with just one match remaining.
