African Cup: Salah scores as Egypt sails through to last 16

Mohamed Salah scored with a trademark left-foot shot and lapped up the praise from fans as host Egypt sailed through to the knockout stages of the African Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

The Liverpool forward also set up the first goal for captain Ahmed el-Mohamady in a 2-0 win over Congo.

Salah's goal two minutes before halftime was typical. He feigned to go one way, and then the other, before curling the ball inside the near post as two defenders tried in vain to stop him.
