Liverpool frontman scores in final minute to give his side 3-2 home victory over Tunisia
Egypt's Mohamed Salah headed to Dubai after match-winning effort in Africa Cup of Nations qualifier
Mohamed Salah will be making a visit to Dubai, the Egyptian superstar has confirmed on Twitter.
Salah, who scored in the final minute to give Egypt a 3-2 home victory over Tunisia on Friday in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match, is reportedly arriving in the emirate for a youth conference later in the week.
The Liverpool star chipped the ball into the net to complete the scoring in a seesaw matchday 5 struggle during which both sides led. Both countries have already qualified for the continental competition.
Salah has scored four goals in Cup of Nations qualifiers - two less than chart-topper Odion Ighalo of Nigeria.
Naim Sliti gave Tunisia an early lead that Mahmoud 'Trezeguet' Hassan cancelled before half time at the 86,000-seat Borg el Arab stadium in Alexandria.
Baher el Mohamad nodded Egypt in front on the hour only for Sliti to score again with 18 minutes remaining and a draw seemed likely until Salah struck.
Before flying to Egypt, Salah continued a return to form after a slow start to the English Premier League season by scoring the first goal for Liverpool in a 2-0 win over Fulham.
It was his sixth league goal this season, and eighth for his club in all competitions.
Salah had a sensational first season with Liverpool, scoring 44 goals in all competitions in the 2017/18 campaign after joining from Roma.
Victory brought Egypt level with Tunisia in Group J on 12 points, but the losers retained first place on head-to-head records.
Tunisia entered the match as the only team among the 48 in the qualifying competition boasting a 100 percent record having beaten Egypt at home, eSwatini away and Niger twice.
It was the first match in charge for Tunisian co-caretaker coaches Mourad Okbi and Maher Kanzari after veteran Faouzi Benzarti was axed despite delivering four victories.
