Egypt’s scored for as his team lost in a six-goal thriller versus league leaders Al Ain in the 11th week of the UAE Arabian Gulf league.

Al Shaab led against the league leaders but found themselves behind 1-3 at half time after conceding three consecutive goals.

Al Ain had midfielder Ahmad Barman sent off when the score was 1-1 to play with 10 men for almost 70 minutes.

El-Sulaya pulled one back for the home side from a corner kick in the 57th minute after capitalising on a goalkeeper error to slot home the rebound, making the scoreline 3-2.

However, Al Shaab conceded a fourth goal to succumb to their 9th defeat in 11 games to remain bottom of the table.

El-Sulaya’s goal against Al Ain is his third goal in the UAE league, as he previously scored in his team’s draw with Dibba and their loss against Emirates club.

Al-Shaab vice president Hassan Al-Me’ani announced earlier this month that the club has received three offers for the Egyptian international raising speculation about El-Sulaya’s departure in January.
