The midfielder's crucial 95th minute penalty secured a 2-1 win over Congo in Alexandria, sparking jubilant scenes.

Egypt's national team secured the win and qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1990, which will be held in Russian Federation in 2018.

Mohamad Salah was still in shock when speaking to Liverpool's website. "This is something you never witness in Egypt", 23-year-old Gamal Mohamed in downtown Cairo's Tahrir Square, the iconic centre of the country's once-active protest movement, which has since been quashed by tough security measures, said.

Gharbia governor Ahmed Deif revealed on Sunday that the school which Salah graduated from has been renamed in his honour after his heroics guided Egypt for the 2018 World Cup.

It was far from plain sailing for Egypt, however, as Congo - who'd only collected one point from their first four matches - cancelled out Salah's opener in the 87th minute.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi approved a reward of 1.5 million Egyptian pounds (about 85,000 US dollars) for each player of the national team for the achievement.

Egypt will now finish top of Group E, making sure of its place at the World Cup with a game to spare against Ghana next month. Egypt, an African giant and founding member of the Confederation of African Football, has only played at two World Cups before - in 1934 and 1990.
