Egypt winger Mohamed Salah has posted a photo on Facebook showing him celebrating the Pharaohs’ 2-0 victory over Tanzania in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

"Perfect result, and great to score, time for the vacation," Salah, 22, posted with a photo on his official Facebook page late Sunday.

The Chelsea star, who is on loan to Fiorentina, netted Egypt's third goal in the 70th minute, after Rami Rabia, 61, and Basem Morsi, 65.

Salah is also celebrating his 23rd birthday on Monday.

Under helm of Argentinean manager Hector Cuper, Egypt are bidding to return to the tournament they won seven times after two successive absences.

They will continue their competition in Group G on 4 September when they face Chad in the second round. Nigeria defeated Chad 2-0 Sunday in the same round.
