EXTRA TIME: Watch Egypt and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah ruin Micho's Uganda dreams

The Congolese almost ruined Egypt's World Cup hopes, after Boukah Moulou cancelled Mohammed Salah's 64th minute goal in the 87th minute. People took the streets and large squares seconds after the end of the match leaving the streets with nonstop cheers, auto honk, and fireworks. In Cairo, an army helicopter dropped hundreds of Egyptian flags on thousands of fans gathered at the city's iconic Tahrir square.

Congo (4-2-3-1): Mouko, Badila, Etou, Itoua, Mayembo, N'Dinga, Oniangue, Bahamboula (Ndockyt 84), Bifouma, Saint-Louis (Gandze 90+2), Delarge (Moutou 71).

In few minutes, the streets turned into a big party.

He bagged the first at the El-Arab Stadium on 62 minutes.

Furthermore, Egypt manager Hector Cuper is also expected to receive a pay raise, earning $90K per month, from the Egyptian Football Association as a recompense for the work done which resulted in Egypt's occupying the first place with 12 points from five games in the qualifiers' Group E.

Instead, the result sees Egypt return to the World Cup for the first time since 1990.

A scoreless first half raised the nerves in Alexandria but Salah's first of the night put one Egyptian foot in Russian Federation.

Salah broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute when he latched on to a through pass from midfielder Mohamed Elneny of Arsenal.

Although Egypt will be coming into this tournament as one of the lesser teams at the World Cup, they will be looking to replicate the giant-killing form that saw Iceland shine at Euro 2016 and Greece lift the trophy in 2004.

But when the hosts were awarded a spot-kick in added time, Salah kept his cool before reeling away in celebration.
