Emre Can has heaped praise on his Liverpool teammate Mohamad Salah.

The North African country had not reached the tournament since Italia 1990 despite winning AFCON four times in between.

The former Chelsea winger was instrumental for the Pharaohs, scoring twice in their 2-1 win over Congo to seal a spot in Russian Federation 2018 World Cup after a 17-year absence.

The game was the played in front of 86,000 fans at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Egypt whose passionate celebrations went viral on social media. Listen to the latest episode and subscribe to the podcast on Deezer and iTunes.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: "It's insane". It was a penalty in the 95th minute. "I'm very happy for Mo - he is the King of Egypt!"

Salah, who retained his Liverpool player of the month award for September, has scored 6 goals in 11 games for Liverpool so far this season, and will be looking to add to that tally this coming Saturday in possibly the biggest game in English football, Liverpool vs Manchester United. "He is an incredible signing for us and I hope he will score a lot of goals in the next few weeks as well". Off the pitch, he is a very good guy.
