His stoppage time penalty sparked wild scenes after the match

Egypt erupted in celebration on Sunday evening after its football team qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation - the first time since 1990.

The Liverpool winger had given his country the lead on the hour mark with a well-taken finish but Congo nearly spoiled the party when Arnold Bouka equalised two minutes from time. Salah put Egypt ahead during the second half in Alexandria only for Arnold Bouka Moutou to equalise two minutes from the end of regular time.

The Bassion Industrial Secondary School will now be called Mohammed Salah Industrial Secondary School in honour of their "son" for the remarkable achievement.

He also thanked Argentine coach Hector Cuper for making "our dreams come true".

"I don't quite talk so much but I'm really proud".

"We are determined to make the country and continent proud in Russian Federation", said Salah who plays in the English Premier League.

Egypt's capital crackled with fireworks and blared with horns as the football-crazy country reached the World Cup for the first time in 28 years, sparking rare scenes of joy in the centre of the city.

"The game was a hard one tonight and all the qualifiers were hard games as well".

"When I stepped up to take the penalty, I didn't think of anything but scoring and winning the game".

"The most hard moment in my life was when the fans fell silent following Congo's equalizer but thank God we finally realized a childhood dream of my own".
