2023-12-16 00:54:43

Al-Shahat scored the second goal for Al-Ahly, becoming the second player in the history of the Club World Cup to score in 4 different editions.

Al-Shahat scored in the tournament with Al-Ain, UAE, in 2018, and scored 3 goals with Al-Ahly in 2020, 2022, and 2023.

With this goal, Al-Shahat reached the fourth goal in the Club World Cup, which made him equal to Abu Trika, the former Al-Ahly star, and Salem Al-Dosari, the Saudi Al-Hilal player, as the best Arab scorer in this tournament.

Al-Ahly reached the semi-finals of the Club World Cup on Friday after defeating Al-Ittihad 3-1 at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, amid a crowd of 56,000 fans.

Al-Ahly took revenge for its loss to Al-Ittihad in the quarter-finals of the same competition in 2005 in Japan, when Al-Ittihad won 1-0 with a late goal by its star Mohamed Nour.

This is Al-Ahly’s first victory over Al-Ittihad to finally break its knot after the latter defeated it in the 1995 Arab Elite Championship with a score of 2-1 and in the 2001 Egyptian-Saudi Super Cup with a score of 3-2.

The goals for the Egyptian club were scored by Tunisian Ali Maaloul, Hussein El-Shahat and Emam Ashour, while Frenchman Karim Benzema scored Al-Ittihad’s only goal, knowing that the latter missed a penalty kick in the 45th minute.

Al-Ahly will play against Brazilian Fluminense in the semi-finals on Monday, while Urawa Red Diamonds of Japan will face Manchester City of England on Tuesday in the other match of this round.
