Tears of joy as Mohamed Salah's winner clinches Egypt World Cup spot

Egypt became the second African nation after Nigeria to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Mohamed Salah's 95th-minute winner ended his nation's 28-year exile from the World Cup on Sunday, sending millions Egypt fans into raptures in the process.

Chief among them was Ashraf Eldib, whose daughter Sophia shared this video on Twitter moments after Salah scored from the penalty spot to seal the Pharaohs' 2-1 win against Congo-Brazzaville.

Despite winning the African Nations Cup in 1998, 2006, 2008 and 2010, Egypt have consistently come unstuck in World Cup qualifying. Until now, that is.

The relief from nearly three decades of frustration is clear to see on Ashraf's face. Who says international breaks are dull?
