How far away is Mo Salah from FIFA 2022?

Egypt is one step closer to qualifying for the Qatar World Cup in 2022 after drawing with Angola.

Egypt's national football team has won the Africa Cup of Nations seven times in total, including the first tournament in 1957. Egypt is also recognized as a force in Africa, being one of just three African teams to crack the top 10. Egypt has qualified for the World Cup four times, the first time in 1934 for Italy, the second time in 1930 for the 1930 Cup, the third time in 2018 for Russia, and the fourth time in 1990 for Italy. The fourth event is the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022.

Egypt qualified for the final stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Qatar, headed by Carlos Kerouche, after beating Anjula and Gabon to win Group VI with 14 points. It officially qualified 10 teams for the final and last phases of qualifying for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. As a consequence, Egypt will play Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, and Tunisia in the World Cup qualifiers final round.


Egypt's football team qualified for the final stage of Africa's qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup after drawing a two-goal tie with Angola. Egypt is equal with Angola at the top of the sixth group with 11 points, qualifying for the final stage of the playoffs in March. Egypt overcame Libya in the third and fourth rounds of the AFC Mondial qualifications for 2022 in October.


According to Blazy, Egypt qualifying for the World Cup will benefit Mo Salah in the Golden Ball event. Given his amazing performance over the last several months, I would rank Mohamed Salah as one of the best three players in the world, rather than one of the top ten. "Salah is capable of playing in any league in the world; he has the elements to flourish in either the Liga or the Italian league," he says.

Qualification for the final stage is established regardless of the result of Egypt's match versus Gabon.
