A thumping Mohamed Salah free-kick gave his side victory over Ghana on Wednesday, sealing their place in the knockout rounds of the 2017 African Cup of Nations.
The win also secured top spot in Group D as Egypt leapfrogged their opponents.
There was immense pressure on Egypt to deliver victory, something Salah looked to have relished.
The Roma man took the game by the scruff of the neck with the onus on him to inspire his team.
As you can see in the video below, he obviously relished it.

Can Egypt now go on to lift the AFCON trophy this year?
The Democratic Republic of Congo have been one of the surprise packages at the African Cup of Nations.
Despite a pre-tournament dispute over bonus payments which saw players skip training for two days, Congo have finished top of their group after a 3-1 victory over Togo on Tuesday.
Junior Kabananga was instrumental again, continuing his scoring run at AFCON with a superb first-half strike to earn Congo a valuable win over the Sparrows Hawks.
The 27-year-old’s goal means he has now scored in every game of the tournament so far.
Meanwhile, defending champions Ivory Coast crashed out after losing 1-0 to Morocco, with Rachid Alioui netting the winner.
Congo and Morocco will discover their quarter-final opponents on Wednesday.
Over the years, we have seen some really desperate attempts by players to waste time when their team is leading and the final whistle near.
From faking an injury to not taking a throw-in as quick as they should, players have tried anything and everything to consume time.
But during an Africa Cup of Nations encounter between Senegal and Algeria, Khadim N’Diaye, Senegal’s goalkeeper was involved in possibly the most weird act of time wasting.
The incident was even more difficult to absorb bearing in mind the match had no relevance, Algeria already out of the tournament and Senegal guaranteed a place in the next round.
As you can see below, this is truly bizarre.
Is this the most ridiculous act of time wasting you have ever seen or can you top N’Diaye’s efforts?
