Egyptian defender played the full 90 minutes as his side Omonia sealed their spot in the Cypriot Cup final after beating AEK Larnaca on penalties.

After a goalless draw in the first leg in GZC Stadium in Larnaca, Omonia entered the game with hopes of securing their place in the final for the first time since 2012, when they won the tournament.

The game went remarkably similar to the first leg, as both teams failed to find the net during the 90 minutes. As the game ended goalless, the two teams were forced to play 30 minutes of extra time.

The scoreline remained 0-0 after the extra time and the match went to a penalty shootout. Omonia scored all five spot-kicks and won 5-3.

Omonia will face Apollon Limasol in the final, which is scheduled to take place on May 18.
