VIDEO: Amr Gamal assists as HJK Helsinki win league opener

Al Ahly loanee provided an assist as HJK Helsinki defeated FC Ilves 3-1 in the Finnish league opener on Sunday.

Gamal, who ended his loan stint with South African side Bidvest Wits over lack of playing time and joined the Finnish side on loan, has already played two games with Helsinki in the Cup.

Gamal started the game on the bench before coming on as a late substitute to replace Riku Riski in the 83rd minute.

The guests opened the scoring early in the first half through Tuure Siira. The hosts failed to level before the end of the first half as Ilves took a 1-0 advantage into halftime.

In the 77th minute, Joao Klaus converted from the spot to level the scoreline. Filip Valencic completed the hosts’ comeback in the 84th minute before sealing the result with a second goal in injury time following an assist from substitute Gamal.

They’ll next face IFK Mariehamn away from home on April 14.
