Books – Mohamed Yousry Morshed:
Al-Duhail, Qatar, in theory, had everything that would qualify it to defeat Al-Ahly, a line of attack with a market value of 24 million euros that includes resonant names, land and capabilities, but he lost; Because it lacks what the Egyptian and African giants have, the spirit that Ayman Ashraf embodied and the history that the fans defended in the stands of a competitor who plays a name on his court.
The elements of professional football often bend in front of voluntary motives, spirit, ferocity and desire ignite a psychological war around you even when you think that you are in front of a competitor within reach, which is what prompted Al-Muizz Ali and his colleagues in the offensive line whose value exceeds 10 times the monetary value of Al-Ahly’s attack on panic and retreat, Not only yesterday, but every time they faced history, he had not yet seen bags of cash on the soccer field to score goals.
Al-Moez Ali, the top scorer of the last edition of the Asian Nations Cup, the Brazilian Edmilson, his compatriot Dodo and the Kenyan giant Michael Olonga of 24 million euros (almost half a billion pounds) in exchange for Walter Bwalia, Marwan Mohsen, Taher and Salah Mohsen, with a market value of 2 million and 600 thousand euros, a difference estimated according to the site ” Transfer Market “with 21 million and 400 thousand euros in the attack only, and in the end the money was not registered and Al-Ahly won.”
Musimani leads Al Duhail
Al-Ahly played one of its best games in the Club World Cup in general, and with Pitso Musimani in particular, thanks to the South African coach and the first-half tactics that guided the plans and preparation of Sabri to Moshe, the Duhail coach for the match.
Contrary to Musimane’s habit of appearing better in the second half, the South African coach surprised his French counterpart with a set of changes for the players’ attackers on the field, Tahir switched from wing to depth, coach Hussein Al-Shahat gave freedom and moved him to the left wing position instead of the right, assigning Maaloul to increase the offensive and secure it. Bhamdi Fathy to take advantage of the weakness of Mohamed Moussa, the right-back for Al-Duhail.
Al-Ahly’s control of the ball and getting it out correctly retreated with the Qatari team back, until Moshe pushed Michael Olwinga towards Ayman Ashraf to try to push Musimani to switch between Ashraf and Badr Bannon to try to make a defect in leaving the ball from the back that did not bear fruit and the Al-Ahly defender overwhelmingly outperformed the Kenyan giant.
Al-Ahly scored his goal under great pressure from Bwalya, the owner of the excellent tactical role, whether by moving towards the Yemeni wing to create a space for Taher, who played behind him, or by pressing the ball carrier so that the Congolese contributed to the goal and scored another hit by an offside to bring back to mind Mohamed Barakat’s goal in the canceled 2008 Mexican Pachuca, which returned the team The last of the match.
Pachuca, which Musimani may not have realized, put the red team in trouble in the second half, after Moshe intervened and pushed by Muhammad Muntari and Muizz Ali; To help Musa and the latter’s survival almost permanently in defense and pushed Edmilson on Hani, who returned from absence, and with Musimani’s fear of dismissing Hamdi Fathi due to receiving a warning, the Qatari team abandoned its caution and returned to the match.
And if the first half was the best first half for Musimani with Al-Ahly, then the second half was the worst for him with Al-Ahly, and he could have managed it in a better way, especially given that he saw Hani’s loophole without interfering, even if Akram moved to this front with Hani, especially since it only posed a danger to the club. Al-Ahmar, then changing Bwalia to Marwan Mohsen, at a time when the attack required a more rapid player to use the spaces in the back of the home team.
The pressure of Al Duhail was borne by the complete brilliant duo Badr Bannon, the voice of reason, the wonderful interventions, the star of the first match, and for the second match in a row, Ayman Ashraf, who provided a lesson in how the medium-tall defender deals with a giant and with air balls.
Al-Ahly won; Because he took advantage of his superiority and took advantage of the opponent’s weaknesses, which he showed weakly in the first half for his coach’s tactic and not because of the opponent’s weakness to strike a date with a giant who needs a spherical epic to come out with the least losses.
