Egyptian prominent businessman Mohamed Abul Enein the Chairman of Egyptian-European Business Council promised Egypt’s national football team to reward each player if they achieve success in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
“One Million Egyptian pounds reward to every player in the team if they reach a place in the 2018 World Cup in Russia,” Abul Enein told Sada el-Balad.
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has sent Egypt through to the World Cup in Russia with a winner from the spot in the fifth minute of time added on against the Congo.
Salah struck just after the hour mark and Egypt were on their way to Russia 2018 but the leveler in the 88th minute from Dijon's Arnold Bouka Moutou took the scenario down to the final match of qualifying.
That was until a penalty at the death saw Egypt through, with the Reds (Liverpool) star stepping up for his country yet again.
The win puts Egypt four points ahead of second-placed Uganda in African qualifying's Group E with just one match remaining.
