Ismaily - Mido

Ismaily beat Saudi Arabian side 2-1 in a friendly match which saw the return of international and fans to the stands.

The friendly was agreed between both clubs last week as Ismaily to prepare to meet Smouha in the 2015  quarter-finals after eliminating Al-Ragaa.

The game was the second for Ismaily’s new coaching staff, led by newly-appointed manager Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’, and witnessed the return of the Dervishes’ faithful.

Al-Wehda struck just five minutes after kick-off as defender Abdulaziz Al-Mansour scored his side’s only goal of the game after chaos in the penalty box.

The Yellow Dragons wasted multiple chances in the first half before Al Ahly and target Amr El-Sulaya scored the night’s second goal.

Ahmed Samir Farag then added another through a thunderous shot before wasting a penalty.

During the second half, many youngsters were given a chance to showcase their skills and abilities. However, the game’s most significant highlight was the fans reuniting with club legend and Egypt international Hosni Abd-Rabo, who recently returned from another ACL injury.
