Egyptian footballer Muhammad Saleh scores four goals to help Egypt beat Djibouti for FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifiers.
Egypt sweeps in the first World Cup qualifiers because of the wonderful performance of Saleh. He scored four goals and brought his Egypt goal count to 50 as Egypt began their FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign with a win against Djibouti.
Saleh continued his goal-scoring record from Liverpool to Cairo scoring four times in Egypt’s 6-0 World Cup qualifying win over Djibouti. He scored three goals in the first half-hour at Cairo International Stadium. He scored the fourth goal at the finish of the match.
It was the first match of Egypt in Africa’s qualification for the expanded World Cup in 2026. After completing the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the seven-time African Cup champions failed to qualify for last year’s World Cup in Qatar.
Saleh has 12 goals in all competitions for Liverpool including two in a 3-0 win over Brentford in the Premier League. He became the first player in Liverpool history to score in all six home league games. The Pharoahs’ other goals came from Mostafa Mohammed and Trézéguet.
In other matches, Lesotho held Nigeria to 1-1 ties at home. Algeria defeated Somalia by 3-1. Burundi defeated Gambia by 3-2. Mozambique won against Bostwana by 3-2. While Gabon defeated Kenya at 2-1 and Sudan held Togo to a 1-1 draw.
