Al Masry win in Confederation Cup against UD Songo

Al Masry

Al Masry won comfortably in their CAF Confederation Cup opener against Mozambican side , thanks to an brace with Mohamed Abdel Latif providing the assists for both goals.

Al Masry XI: Massoud, Mostafa, Koffi, Salah, Hamdy Sharaf, Shawki, Moussa, Shoukry, Bance, Ateya, Gomaa.

UD Songo XI: Leonel, Gildo, Mano, Tembe, Butana, Cremildo, Kambala, Manuwere, Parkim, Pelembe, Banda.

Having been drawn in a relatively tough group alongside RS Berkane of Morocco and Al Hilal of Sudan, Al Masry knew that to have a realistic chance of progressing they would almost have to win in what is on paper the easiest game of the group stage at home against UD Songo of Mozambique.

As the home team, Al Masry made the most of their advantage as they dominated possession from the get go. While they were creating chances, they were unable to make a significant breakthrough until Ahmed Gomaa continued his excellent goalscoring form this season just before half time with substitute Latif providing the assist.

Gomaa picked up where he left off in the second half as he scored just seven minutes into the second half with Latif once again being the provider, and Al Masry were able to close out the game for the remainder of the half to win 2-0.

The win means that Al Masry are top of their group although there is still a very long way to go. RS Berkane beat Al Hilal 1-0 in the other game in the group.

Al Masry’s next game is a tricky away tie in the Egyptian Premier League against Ismaily on Friday 11th of May at 6PM Egyptian time.
