VIDEO: ENPPI edge past Al Masry to earn first three points
ENPPI squeezed past Al Masry at the PetroSport stadium, in the third round of the Egyptian Premier League.
The hosts took a 2-0 lead that lasted until the 78th minute, before their opponents halved the deficit to set up a nervy finish.
Salah Ashour scored the opener in the 28th minute, heading home from an in-swinging free-kick.
Four minutes later, Lamah cut inside from the left and played Kaoud in behind the defence with a deft flick, and the latter squeezed home from a tight angle to double the lead.
Said Mourad’s long cross in the 78th minute found an unmarked Gomaa, who headed easily past the stationary Abdel-Monsef, but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation as the match drew to a close.
ENPPI travel to Alexandria on Thursday to face Smouha.
