Pharaoh’s delight: An incredible passing move from Al Ahly

Last weekend saw a meeting of the two powerhouses of Egyptian football as Al-Ahly faced-off against their arch-rivals El-Zamalek in the Cairo derby.

Al-Ahly took the spoils, winning the match 1-nil thanks to Flavio’s header nine minutes from time.

Yet while the goal was the obvious standout moment of the game, after taking the lead the hosts put on an exhibition for their home fans, putting together an unbelievable period of almost complete possession for just under two minutes of play.

The only interruption to a 100% shut-out came after 1.10 minutes when an El-Zamalek player managed to get his head on the ball only to see possession immediately retrieved by Al Ahly.

If only Al Ahly’s endeavour would have resulted in a goal it may have been a better passing move than Argentina’s effort against Serbia at the 2006 World Cup. (Watch here.)
