The Egypt International has now a total of two goals in the Saudi Professional League, since joining Al Ahli Jeddah last summer.

Ittihad opened the scoring after only seven minutes as Fahd Al Muwalled launched a fast solo run towards the goal and fired his side into an early lead.

15 minutes later, Omar Al Soma equalised the scoreline from a glancing header that beat Ittihad goalkeeper

Fawaz Al-Qarni.
At the 39th minute, Abdullah El-Said was introduced to the game after Al Ahli coach was forced to bring Jorge Djaniny off the field due to injury.

In the early minutes of the second half, Al Ahli were able to take over the lead through Abdelfattah Asiri as Soma cleared space for him inside the box to make it a 2-1.

With 15 minutes left on the clock, Josef de Souza fed Abdallah El-Said with a nice through ball inside the box and the Egyptian chipped the goalkeeper perfectly to earn his side valuable three points.

Following the victory, Al Ahli Jeddah now stand third on the Saudi Professional League table, five points behind leaders Al Hilal. Al Ahli’s next encounter will be against Al Feiha on the 30th of November.
