VIDEO: El-Shahat’s assist leads Al Ain to comeback win over Al Dhafra
Egypt international Hussein El-Shahat has led his side Al Ain to a late 2-1 win over Al Dhafra in the second round of the UAE Pro-League.
Al Ain hosted Al Dhafra on Saturday, hoping to maintain their winning start to the season and they got what they wanted with a tough 2-1 victory.
Al Dhafra opened the scoring through Ahmed Ali in the 19th minute, before Ibrahim Diaky equalised in the 80th minute, converting El-Shahat’s low cross into the net.
The Ivorian forward was not satisfied with the draw and in the 88th minute, he scored the winner, heading in a loose ball after a scramble in the box, which was started by El-Shahat.
After this assist, El-Shahat has now taken his tally to one goal and three assists in only two games this season.
Al Ain currently sit third in the league table with six points from six, only behind Al Wahda and Al Sharjah on goal difference.
Their next game will be against 11th-placed Al Nasr, who lost their opening two games, on Friday, September 21.
