At 3:30 a.m. Beijing time today, the first round of the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifiers African play-offs ushered in a focus battle. Africa Cup runner-up Egypt will play at home against Africa Cup champion Senegal. In the end, with an own goal made by Salah, Egypt defeated Senegal 1-0 and seized the opportunity in the two rounds.
In the 4th minute of the opening, the Egyptian team scored an early goal, which was the only goal of the two teams in the game. Zulia’s midfielder sent a precise pick and played for Galatasaray’s center Mohammed to head the ball forward, and Salah plugged in on the left side of the penalty area to form an anti-offside.
Facing the attacking Mendy, Salah chose to force a strong push with his left foot. Mendy reacted quickly, touching the ball with his fingertips. Mendy’s touch this time caused the inevitable goal to deflect on the trajectory, and the ball hit the crossbar and bounced back into the field. But Senegal defender Sis came to add to the chaos at this time. He was hit by the ball in the middle of the small penalty area. Caught off guard, Sis could only watch the ball into the net, and his own goal made Egypt win 1-0.
The second leg will be held at 3:30 am on March 30, when Senegal will play at home. With a 1-0 score in the first leg, the second leg is still very open and anything can happen. But one thing is bound to happen, and that is that between Salah and Mane, there must be one person who will miss the World Cup in Qatar. It’s a huge regret for the Liverpool striker and fans around the world.
