A fourth-minute own goal by Senegal goalkeeper Saliou Ciss was enough to give Egypt a 1-0 win in the first leg of their World Cup play-off in Cairo.
Ciss was incredibly unlucky when a shot from Mohamed Salah bounced back off the bar and struck him on the back.
The match was billed as a rerun of the recent Africa Cup of Nations final - won by Senegal on penalties after the match ended 0-0 - and to an extent it captured the cagey nature of that occasion back in February, with few chances of significance.
The game featured Liverpool's two star strikers Salah and Sadio Mane, but neither of them had stellar games.
Nevertheless, on a day dominated by north African teams - Algeria and Tunisia also won 1-0, albeit away, and Morocco got an away goal in a draw in DR Congo - Ciss's unfortunate moment meant Egypt matched the achievements of their continental neighbours.
