Egypt was not able to participate in the World Cup this year.

After his country Egypt failed to qualify, football superstar Mo Salah claimed he may still go to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year, even though he is not playing.

Salah congratulated Qatar for hosting the first FIFA World Cup to be held in the Arab world in an interview with beIN Sports that has yet to be broadcast.

"I am delighted that the World Cup will be held in an Arab nation for the first time, and it is possible to be in Qatar throughout the competition. Additionally, Qatar will have the support of the entire Arab world, and Salah predicted that the World Cup would be memorable.

Senegal defeated Egypt 3-1 on penalties in the African World Cup qualifying match in March, heart-breaking for Egyptian fans.

The Egyptians were stopped from competing in what would have been their fourth World Cup appearance by Sadio Mané's team.

Salah has remained upbeat about attending the 2022 World Cup in Qatar despite the disappointing defeat because he thinks supporters would find it to be an exciting event.

During the tournament, all regional and domestic football leagues will be suspended to allow participants to join their national teams.

Salah's comments were made shortly after the Egyptian Football Association declared it will appeal the decision on the replay of the World Cup qualifying match between Egypt and Senegal.

Egypt criticized the Senegal match as unfair and said that the loss of the national team was in large part due to lasers being pointed at members of its side.

It is exceedingly unlikely that a rematch between the two teams would be scheduled with less than 100 days until the winter World Cup.

On November 20, in Qatar, the quadrennial phenomenon that will feature 32 nations competing for the FIFA World Cup trophy gets underway.

FIFA's Second Official Song

The second official single for the competition, titled "Arhbo," was published by FIFA on Saturday. The song features Latin Grammy-winning Puerto Rican musician Ozuna and Congolese French rapper Gims. Jassim Abdullah Al Harban, a Kuwaiti singer, directed the video for the song.

The song is only now accessible via FIFA's official YouTube account, but FIFA has stated that it will be made available on all music streaming services starting on August 26.

The song's repetition of the Arabic word "Arhbo," which means "welcome," symbolizes both the tournament's first appearance in an Arab nation and the readiness of the host nation to welcome fans from throughout the world.
