The final of the CAF Africa Cup of Nations is behind them, but the truth is that Egypt took revenge and beat Senegal to take the first step in qualifying for the FIFA World Cup. Salah and Mané met on the pitch and will be reunited in less than a week’s time.

Egypt’s revenge on Senegal came first: the Pharaohs won 1-0 in the first leg of the African play-off for a place at the FIFA World Cup.
The goal was scored by Mohamed Salah, but he was not the one who scored it. The Liverpool player found a ball in the box, shot, and hit the crossbar, but Saliou Ciss had the misfortune to cross in the rebound and made it 1-0 against.

Egypt took revenge for the final played on February 6, when Senegal won its first Africa Cup on penalties against the same opponent. The Pharaohs had March 25 in red.
On that day, the two teams would meet again, this time over two legs and with one of the five African slots for the FIFA World Cup at stake. Only one can remain, and so far, Egypt has struck first.
The joy in the celebrations and the Egyptian huddle around Mohamed Salah denoted the month and a half they had been waiting for this elimination, face to face against their continental executioner.

On the other side, Sadio Mané was the most active for Senegal, although his electric runs down the flank never found a clear finisher.
The first leg was played at Cairo’s International Stadium and was won by Egypt, but all is still to play for in the second leg on Tuesday 29 March in Diamniadio, Senegal.

It was Salah who provided the victory for the Egyptian team and beat his Liverpool teammate, Mané.
Egypt will travel to Senegal with a 1-0 lead that could be worth a lot. The resolution, next Tuesday, in a match that will leave us with the desire to see one of the two best teams in Africa at the FIFA World Cup.
