Ittihad defeat newly-promoted Aswan
39 minutes into the game, Aswan were millimeters away from scoring their first goal of the season, but former Al Ahly defender Ahmed El-Sayed heroically cleared Shokry Naguib’s ball off the line.
Five minutes later, unmarked Cape Verdan winger Luis Soares ‘Platini’ scored the opener as he received a cross from Patrick Ngoma and dodged Aswan’s defender before place an accurate shot into the back of the net.
Defender Hamada El-Sayed almost gave the Alexandrians a precious gift after a misjudged header that was exploited by Ittihad, but El-Sayed recovered and impressively cleared the ball.
As Aswan struggled to score an equalizer, the second half drew to a close and Ittihad claimed their first 3 three points of the season.
