Wait is over … Egypt will be present in the next World Cup in Russia. The Pharaohs had to wait for 28 years to see their national team in the greatest international tournament, once again.
The patch was full of ups and downs. The last game against Congo was a real challenge for all Egyptians. Mohamed Salah‘s late goal released a whole nation ! The actual national team is not the best in the last 28 years but it will always be remembered as the one that offered this big joy to all people in Egypt.
Arsenal‘s Arsène Wenger congratulated Egypt for this big achievement. In an interview published in the Gunners’ Facebook page, the French coach said: “Egypt succeeded to qualify to the World Cup and I’m completely aware that it’s an exceptional event since they have been absent for a long long time”.
He added: “But they made it this time. We’re happy for you and for our player ElNeny. It’s also a great achievement for him since he showed a great performance with the national team as well”.
