Mohamed Salah was the toast of Egypt after the team’s match against Congo yesterday, scoring two goals during a 2-1 win that guaranteed the team a seat at the World Cup table for the first time since 1990, and only the third time ever. As you could imagine, this made a few very patient fans very happy.

For instance, this Dad appears to break down with what can only be described as unmitigated happiness and gratitude as he celebrates this team’s good fortune. He’s been waiting 28 years for his team to join the ranks of the world’s elite, and he’ll no doubt be primed and ready when his team takes the pitch next summer.

Whoa. He looks like he might actually be in physical pain as a result of the win. If there’s any question that soccer fans are the most passionate among the sports world, this might be compelling evidence that, yeah, they totally are.

Someone get that guy a Kleenex!
