VIDEO: Shikabala’s goal not enough to save Al Raed from relegation playoffs
Mahmoud Shikabala managed to put his name on the scoresheet in Al Raed’s six-goal thrilling clash with Al Feiha in the 25th round of the Saudi Pro League.
Shikabala bagged a late first-half goal and two assists in Al Raed’s 3-3 draw with Al Feiha at King Salman Sports City Stadium, taking his tally this season to eight goals and four assists in 21 games across all competitions.
After Danilo Aspirella took the lead for the hosts in the 40th minute, Shikabala equalized for his side three minutes into stoppage time of the first-half.
Ronnie Fernandez regained the lead for Al Feiha in the 48th minute, but Saleh Al-Shehri’s brace in the 70th and 75th minutes put the visitors in front. However, Aspirella equalized four minutes later, saving a point for his side.
The game also saw former Ittihad of Alexandria defender Mohamed Atwa play the full 90 minutes for Al Read, but couldn’t help the side in the defensive part of the game.
The Zamalek loanee will hope his performance has impressed Hector Cuper as he will hope to earn a place in the 2018 World Cup squad.
After the draw, Al Raed lie 13th in the Saudi League with 21 points and are confirmed to play in the relegation playoffs. Their next game against Kahraba’s Ittihad Jeddah on Thursday means nothing to their survival quest.
