Egypt Qualifies for World Cup for First Time Since 1990, Twitter Goes OFF!

On Sunday, Liverpool’s Mo Salah netted an outrageously last minute penalty to give Egypt a 2-1 win over Congo. It was an incredibly important goal, as it secured Egypt a place in the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.

That’s right, when Egypt step onto the pitch in next year’s competition in Russia, it will be the country’s first stab at football’s biggest prize since Italia ‘90.

Until then, let’s bask in Egypt’s joy. Right after Salah buried the penalty in the 94th minute, his home nation, quite understandably, went absolutely beserk. The ecstasy was documented on Twitter in countless spine-tingling, goosebump-inducing posts, the best of which we’ve posted below.

Football, especially when it unfolds as it did in Alexandria on Sunday, really is great.
