Mohamed Salah Scores Brilliant 90th-Minute Winner For Egypt Against Tunisia
Mohamed Salah once again rose to the occasion after he scored a brilliant 90th-minute winner for Egypt against Tunisia in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
Salah Mohsen passed the ball to the 26-year-old Liverpool forward as he darted into the box, which he easily slotted past Farouk Ben Mustapha at the Borg El Arab Stadium, Alexandria.
The former Roma and Chelsea star was later booked for taking his shirt off during his celebration.
Both teams have already qualified for the tournament, which will be held in Cameroon from 15th June to 13th July.
Last month, Salah showed how important he has been for Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations qualification stage when he scored directly from a corner.

The Reds star, who won the Premier League Golden Boot last season, hit the 50-goal mark faster than any other player for the club last month.
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp believes that Salah's milestone ends the discussion over his form this season.
"It's good that we can maybe stop talking about that," he said (via the Guardian).
"That will help a little bit. I was not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it then you think something is obviously wrong or people are not happy.
"You shouldn't be constantly be thinking about how you can score again.
"It only happens if you work hard, you are in the right spaces, if your teammates see you in the right moments and if you make the right runs, then you can score.
"It's an exceptional number and hopefully he can continue. What's the next record he can reach?"

I really tried to let you go home early, and sorry to have kept you here until the last minute. I hope your teacher tomorrow understands the situation.
