94th minute goal, crazy celebration and into the World Cup 28 years later

Egypt sealed their place in the World Cup in Russia by clinching a last-gasp win over Congo. Liverpool's Mo Salah scored in the 94th minute to secure the return of the 'Pharaohs'.

Only a win could see Egypt through to the competition in Russia next summer, and they did just that to open the gap with runners-up Uganda.

Egypt head coach Hector Cuper has managed to complete a much-awaited comeback for the Egyptians, who had not made the finals of the prestigious competition since Italy 1990. This will be the third World Cup they take part in.

Salah scored the first before Bouka-Moutou equalised for the visitors. The Liverpool man stepped forward again to bang in from the spot and send the home fans into delirium.
