Sobhy salvages late point for Al Ahly against Al Masry
Al Ahly and Al Masry drew 1-1 at El Gouna stadium on Saturday afternoon in their first encounter since the 2012 Port Said disaster.

The former Egypt U-20 international was once again at the centre of danger, this time his strike slammed against the far post.
Al Masry could’ve easily gone 1-0 up when Ahmed Raouf found himself in a fantastic position, but he failed to wrap his foot around the ball.
Raouf went through on goal minutes later, but Mosaad Awad was there to clear the ball away from danger.
Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ came agonisingly close to giving the Red Devils the lead, as he saw his curled strike go centimetres wide of the post.
Mahmoud Abdel-Hakim gave the Green Eagles the lead near the hour mark when his right-footed strike found the net.
The Red Castle came really close to opening the scoring when Trezeguet’s header was cleared off the line by the Green Eagles.

Juan Carlos Garrido’s men finally got their equaliser through substitute Ramadan Sobhy who scored from close range with his first touch of the game.
