Egypt’s Karim Hafez sees red in Omonoia win

Posted on March 19, 2016

Egypt Left-Back was shown a red card as edged past championship playoff rivals NEA Salamis with a 2-1 victory.

It was Omonia’s goal-king Andre Schembri who opened the scoring for the Nicosia-based side in the 36th minute to give his side the lead.

Soon after, Omonoia had a task on their hands as Hafez was shown a straight red for a reckless challenge on a Salamis player. Salamis had chances with the extra man but failed to make it count as Schembri got his brace in the 73rd minute to give his side a 2-0 lead.

However Salamis pulled one back with DimitarMakriev popping up in the 83rd minute to give his side a slim chance of getting a point.

The Green & White clad managed to hold on to get three valuable points & rise up to 4th place in the playoff Championship with 55 points, 13 points behind leaders & local rivals APOEL Nicosia.
