After Nigeria became the first African country to qualify for Russian Federation 2018 world cup after beating Zambia 1:0 though in a controversial way, Egypt followed suit.
Egypt last qualified for the World Cup in 1990 with the record seven-time African champions suffering numerous heart-breaking failures since.
Mohamed Salah scored from a penalty kick deep into injury time on Sunday to send Egypt to the World Cup and end a near 30-year wait for Africa's most successful team.
"Maybe we don't play handsome football but we are at the World Cup and that's the most important thing", Cuper said.
"I am proud of all the players but especially of Mo Salah who was fearless enough to take the crucial penalty".
