Wadi Degla eliminate Ismaily to reach Egypt Cup semi-finals
Wadi Degla reached the semi-finals of the 2014 Egypt Cup by eliminating Ismaily via a penalty shootout with a score of 4-2.
The 2013 runners-up locked horns with two-time winners Ismaily despite finding themselves 1-0 down inside six minutes.
Wadi Degla XI: Essam El-Hadary, Ragab Nabil, Taha Adel, Mohamed El-Hossary, Akwety Mensah, Hamed Feisal, Sayed Salem, Karim Mamdouh, Mostafa Talaat, Mohab Said, Abdelfattah El-Agha.
Ismaily XI: Mohamed Awad, Shawky El-Said, Ahmed El-Esh, Ibrahim Hassan, Omar El-Wahsh, Hosny Abd-Rabo, Saleh Moussa, Amr El-Sulaya, Mahmoud Hamad, Mahmoud Abdelaziz, Mahmoud Alaa.
The Dervishes started the game in scintillating fashion when they broke the deadlock inside six minutes; Mahmoud Abdelaziz latched onto Abd-Rabo’s cross to make it 1-0.
Ismaily continued their domination and Essam El-Hadary was called into action on several occasions especially when he managed to pull of a great save to deny a stinging strike in the 21st minute.
Wadi Degla managed to equalise in the second half when Ismaily defender Ahmed El-Esh committed an error in the penalty box.
Mostafa Talaat stepped up and converted his penalty, taking the game to penalties.
In the end the Yellow-Blacks prevailed courtesy of Essam El-Hadary who managed to pull off two saves to deny Ahmed El-Esh and Mahmoud Hamad, thus guaranteeing Degla’s progression.
Degla managed to convert four penalties through Mohamed El-Hussary, Sayed Salem, Ahmed El-Merghany and Mostafa Talaat – while Mohab Said missed his spot kick.
Ismaily on the other hand only scored two penalties through Hosny Abd-Rabo and Mohamed Zika.
It is also worth mentioning that a replay of the 2013 final is possible if Zamalek defeat Haras El-Hodood on Thursday.
