Egypt beats Tunisia 3-2, Salah scores last-minute winner

Topping coverage of Egypt in the foreign press is Mo Salah leading the national football team to victory in our AfCON qualifier against Tunisia on Friday. Salah brought the final sore to 3-2 with a finesse shot in the 89th minute (watch, runtime: 1:37). The win brought Egypt on par with Tunisia in group points at 12 each, with the latter maintaining the lead with a better head-to-head record. Over the past week, Morocco, Nigeria, Mali and Uganda also booked their places at next year’s final round of qualifiers, according to Reuters. Egypt is due to face Niger on 22 March next year.

In other football news, Salah is on the list of nominees for the 2018 BBC African Footballer of the Year award, according to BBC. The award’s winner will be announced on 14 December. Salah was crowned BBC African Footballer in 2017.
