Egyptian president awards $85,000 bonus to each player in the national team for qualifying for Russia 2018

Egypt is still in a joyous mood following their qualification this weekend for next year's world cup in Russia, their first in almost 27 years.
Egypt's President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has now given a bonus of $85,000 (£65,000) to each of the players who clinched a place at the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

The president had special praise for match-winner Mohamed Salah, who scored a penalty in injury time to secure the qualification 'I am proud of all the players but especially of Mo Salah who was brave enough to take the crucial penalty'.

He also thanked Argentine coach Hector Cuper for making "our dreams come true".
