Egypt: Ajayi Brace Earn Al Ahly Late Victory Over El-Gaish

Junior Ajayi brace earned Al Ahly a dramatic late 2-1 home victory over Tala’a El-Gaish on Sunday.

Ahmed Samir put El-Gaish ahead with a superb free-kick in the 28th minute.

The hosts needed just five minutes to equalize after Mohamed Magdy Afsha found Ajayi with a smart cross and the Nigerian converted it home with a brilliant header.

Ajayi netted the winning goal five minutes from time slotting the ball home from close range.

The victory moved Al Ahly up to second spot in the Egyptian Premier League with 24 points, five behind leaders Zamalek; however, the Reds still have two games in hand.

Their next game will see them travel to face struggling rivals Ismaily on March 10, but first they will host AS Vita Club on Saturday, March 6 in the third round of the CAF Champions League group stages.

  • This guy should move to reputable league in Europe to prove his mettle so as to convince Nigerians for his inclusion in SE

      He should move to a reputable league in Europe… It’s so easy to just wish a move and have it right? Al-Ahly competed in World Club Cup and came up short against Bayern Munich but gave a good account of themselves. If he did not move to Europe but say he moved to Brazil to play for Copa libertadores champions, Palmeiras… Would that also be enough to call him up and give him valuable minutes in Super Eagles? Funny… If playing South America champions would be enough to earn him a cap in SE… then you have no valid argument because Al-Ahly beat Palmeiras, the Almighty South American Champions from Brazil. Now how about those playing in decent league like Peter Olayinka with valuable Europa League and Champions League experience? Have you given deem fair participation in the Super Eagles? If Junior Ajayi and Peter Olayinka were from Ghana, Zambia, Congo Dr, Senegal, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Cameroon, South Africa and Egypt… they will be starters for their national teams and Super Eagles of today can’t really lay an outright valid claim that they are better than all these teams! Our coach won’t see anything good in certain players who have proven themselves for successive years and even more, he won’t even consider any outfield player good enough who is based on the continent because he is European and some like him are already wired to think that way… Let’s not forget how and what a certain Garba Lawal(Esperence), Emmanuel Amuneke(Zamalek), Sunday Mbah(Rangers Enugu), John Utaka(Ismaily) and Julius Aghahowa(Esperence) contributed to the Super Eagles when they played on the continent… footballers in Europe are just previleged and though, European leagues being very competitive… Players elsewhere all around the world with quality can actually do wonders if given opportunities too… Some of those playing in the celebrated European Leagues are mostly in average teams or not really being anything near spectacular themselves too…
