Ittihad defeat newly-promoted Aswan

Posted on October 21, 2015


Ittihad Alexandria

defeated newly promoted SC 1-0 in the first round of the Egyptian Premier League at the Alexandria Stadium.

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.
