BY DAVID ISABIRYE

CAF Champions League (Group A):

KCCA (Uganda) 2-0 Al Ahly (Egypt)

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Football Club sent shock waves across the African continent with a 2-0 home victory against eight-time African champions, Al Ahly Sporting Club during a CAF Champions league group A match played at the Mandela National Stadium, Kampala on Tuesday.

Midfielder Ibrahim Sadam Juma and defender Denis Timothy Awany scored the two second half goals for the 12 time Ugandan champions.


It was a game of completely two different halves with the visitors dominating the opening stanza and the hosts taking over the subsequent half.

Ten minutes into the game, Marwan Tharwat had the first chance for Al Ahly when he was denied by goalkeeper Charles Lukwago just outside the goal area as the shot stopper thrilled with his rare ball dribbling skills.

14 minutes later, KCCA defender Habib Kavuma was adjudged to have held the ball with his hands and a penalty was awarded. Lukwago saved the resultant kick from Walid Said Ebeib to keep the game even goal-less.

KCCA’s first attempt at the opposition goal arrived after half an hour of action when striker Muhammed Shaban headed narrowly over the bar from a curling Julius Poloto header.

Shaban shot just over the bar from 20 yards two minutes later after quick exchange of passes with midfielder Jackson Nunda.

With 10 minutes to the end of the first half, Lukwago once against reacted faster off the goal-line to deny Phakamani Mahlambi in another goalie to beat incident.

The goalkeeper was again alert to tame a Marwan header just inside the area as the two sides returned to the locker rooms for the mandatory half time break tied goal-less.

At the onset of the second half, KCCA called for the first change of the game. Lawrence Bukenya replaced the tired legs of Jackson Nunda.

Allan Okello tested El Shenawy from 25 yards but it was an easy and routine collection for the lanky Egyptian goalkeeper.

In the 56th minute, Salah Mohsen Mohamed Shalabi replaced Phakamani Mahlambi.

KCCA’s golden moment arrived in the 58th when Ibrahim Saddam Juma’s through ball intended for Muhammed Shaban was poked out for a corner by right back Mohamed Eldmerdash.

The home side remained the better side for the better part of the second half with half chances created although the Egyptians remained water tight.

Ahmed Hussein Ahmed Hafez replaced Walid Said Ebeid on the 66th minute mark.

With twenty minutes left on the clock, KCCA went for an offensive strategy – holding midfielder Isaac Kirabira paved way for striker Derrick Paul Nsibambi.

KCCA’s Sadam Juma celebrates his goal against Al Ahly
Saddam Ibrahim Juma lit up the Namboole stands with a customary trade mark long range effort in the 73rd minute after being up by Allan Okello.

Inside the final quarter of the game, Al Ahly skipper Hossam Ashour was taken out for Islam Mohareb.

Substitute Nsibambi had a diving header narrowly miss target off a telling cross from the by-line by the hard working winger Julius Poloto.

Al Ahly’s right back Mohamed Eldmerdash got cautioned by the day’s referee Victor Miguel De Freitas Gomes.

With five minutes to the end of the game, KCCA called for the final change when Paul Mucureezi came on for Shaban Muhammed.

The visitors had one more chance to make amends but left back Sabry Abdelmontelb shot over the bar from an acute angle on the left wing.

South African FIFA Referee Gomes awarded KCCA a penalty when lanky defender Amro Elsoulia brought down Nsibambi inside the goal area.

Captain Timothy Denis Awany converted from the resultant kick from the penalty spot two minutes from full time and seal the historic victory for the Ugandans who earn their first victory of the campaign following a heart breaking 1-0 loss away to the Botswana outfit, Township Rollers.

Al Ahly remains win-less in two matches having drawn at home goal-less with Tunisian side, Esperance.

Esperance hosts Township Rollers hours later on Tuesday.

Reactions:

Hossam El Badry – Al Ahly Head coach

We created chances in the first half but were not clinical. We still have chance from the remaining four games in the group

Mike Hillary Mutebi – KCCA Manager:

We exhibited very tactical discipline. As a coach am satisfied with the result on the day and the performance of the team players particularly the goalkeeper (Charles Lukwago) and Sadam Juma. There is still a lot to play for in the group.

Al Ahly head coach El Badri resigns after embarrassing away loss to KCCA

15 MINS AGO
BY DAVID ISABIRYE

TwitterFacebookInstagram
Hossam El Badri has resigned his duties as Al Ahly Sporting Club head coach.

Hossam El-Badri
The sad development arose less than two hours after their 2-0 loss on the road at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) football club in a group Champions league group A match played at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

The club website confirmed the development;


We accept the resignation of head coach Hossam El Badri. The club executive will convene on Wednesday to discuss a way forward.

Midfielder Ibrahim Sadam Juma and defender Timothy Denis Awany (penalty) scored for the Ugandan side in the 73rd and 88th minutes respectively.

In the aftermath of their 2-0 loss, Al Ahly remains with just a point from two matches.

Al Ahly played to a goal-less draw at home with Tunisian side Esperance.

A few weeks ago, Al Ahly lost 1-0 to Isaac Muleme’s Alassiouty Sport in the Egypt cup quarter finals.

Al Ahly has won the Egypt Premier League a massive 40 times, 6 CAF Super cup honours and has lifted the CAF Champions league 8 times.

I'm not surprised the birds with the long skinny legs won :tic: AlAhly hotel was a container building. Their changing room was a container with no windows, just wooden benches and a bucket in a corner for toilet. :evil: :twisted:

:lol: :lol: Have you sampled any of it? You're not alone. Many EPL fan boys cannot watch anything else but the queen's league.
They can barely watch the World Cup.

It is the same club. The parent organization was reorganized and rebranded.

I hope Kotoko get their act together like KCCA.
Remember Phillip Omondi? :thumbs:
Those were the good old days. :D

A bit of an over-reaction to resign because they lost a group phase game. They could still qualify and there are 4 games left!

They lost to a minnow whose offices are in containers while Al Ahly is a $26M plus operation with CAF pedigree.

This season alone Man Utd lost to Bristol, Arsenal lost to Notts Forest, and Man City lost to Wigan Jose, Arsene, and Pep did not resign after those results. One player at Utd, Arsenal, or City earns more per month than the entire annual wage bill of the squads they lost to.

Al Ahly had a stretch of bad results.
They drew at home with Esperance, then lost league games before losing to KCCA.

An overreaction? Maybe, because according to match reports, they could have easily won either of those games by wide margins but as the coach said, they were out of luck. In the KCCA game alone, Al Ahly could have been up by 4 goals at half-time (including a missed pena). Unfortunately, they sat back in the 2nd half and invited the home side to attack them.

Apparently, against Esperance, their young S. African striker missed sitter after sitter.
