VIDEO: Hussein El-Shahat assists as Al Ain thrash Al-Dhafra

Second half substitute provided an assist as Al Ain thrashed Al-Dhafra 5-0 in the last gameweek of the Arabian Gulf League on Sunday.

Swedish forward Marcus Berg gave Al Ain, who had already secured the league title, a 1-0 lead midway through the first half.

Around the one-hour mark, El-Shahat came on to replace Brazilian midfielder Caio Lucas Fernandes. Just few minutes later, Ibrahim Diaky made it 2-0 for Al Ain.

Berg then netted three goals in around 17 minutes. He scored his second of the night in the 72nd minute, before converting from the spot with five minutes to go. In the 88th minute, El-Shahat’s low cross inside the penalty box found Berg who tapped home to make it 5-0.

Al Ain will next play the UAE President’s Cup final against Al Wasl before facing Qatari side Al-Duhail SC in the first leg of the AFC Champions League round of 16.
