Hector Cuper-managed Egypt won their first third-round 2018 World Cup qualifier despite going down early to Republic of Congo in Brazzaville.

Ferebory Dore of Ligue 1’s Angers put the hosts ahead on 24minutes, but AS Roma’s Mohamed Salah equalised just before half-time.

Abdallah Said of Cairo giants Al Ahly fired in the winner on 58 minutes and the Pharaohs held on from there.

The hosts started brightly when France-based Ferbory Dore headed in the opening goal for Congo Brazzaville in the 24th minute.

A strong Egypt side fought back with Roma star Mohamed Salah equalising four minutes before the break to make it 1-1.

On 58 minutes, Salah turned goal-maker, setting up Al Ahly's Abdallah El-Said who scored to make it 2-1 to Egypt.
