The profile of former Dream Team VI striker Junior Ajayi continues to soar higher in the Egyptian premier league due to his scintillating performance in every game for his club Al-Ahly.
The former CS Sfaxien striker on Saturday night gave maximum three points to his team as he netted the all important winning goal in their game against Entag El-Harby.
The defending Egyptian league champions, expectedly dominated the match and were rewarded in the 11th minute through Hamoudi’s strike, but Entag equalized from the penalty spot through Khalid Kamar after Ashraf handled the ball in the box.
Ahly had chance to restore the lead early in the second half but Ajayi’s shot rattled the bar after a fine interchange between him and Soliman.
Ajayi finally restored the Red devils lead later in the game as he netted the winning goal from a rebounds shot. The speedy striker has now scored eight goals in the ongoing Egyptian league season for Al-Ahly.
The result keeps Al Ahly in first place – 21 points ahead of second-placed Zamalek.
Al Ahly will next visit El Dakhleya on February 28 in the 27th round of the Egyptian Premier League
