Liverpool star Mohamed Salah helped Egypt to a 3-0 World Cup qualifying triumph over closest rivals Libya that puts them on the brink of winning group F.

Egypt scored twice near halftime in Benghazi through Ahmed fotouh and Mostafa Mohamed, the team’s second straight win over Libya at the start of new coach Carlos Queiroz’s Tenure.

Libya now have six points and Egypt are at 10 after four rounds of matches in the Group, while Angola and Gabon each have four.

Egypt’s win moved them within one win of topping group F and advancing to the decisive playoffs in march.

Libya still has two more matches against Angola and Gabon this month.

The top finisher in each of the 10 groups advances to the playoffs where the five ties will be played over two legs with the aggregate winner qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
