Egypt’s international Mohamed Abdel-Shafy played full 90 minutes in Al Ahli’s win over the hosts, Hajer 1-0 in the Saudi Professional League.

This is Abdel-Shafy’s second game as a starter, after staying away for months due to a knee injury last February.

The first half featured many chances from both sides, with Al Ahli dominating most of the game; however, it ended in a goalless draw.

In the second half, Al Ahli’s swiss manager, Christian Gross, made three substitutions to boost his team’s offensive role. Yet, it wasn’t until the 86th minute when the team’s star Omar Al Somah scored the first and only goal of the game from a penalty, granting the royal team their 3 points.

With this win, Al Ahli stay on the summit of the table, three points ahead from the rivals Al Hilal.
