Egypt midfielder Hossam Ghaly headed home in stoppage time to lift Lierse to the Belgian Cup quarter-final following a 3-2 win over lower division club Lommel United on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old rose at the near post to send a looping header past the keeper in the dying seconds. A Lommel United defender appeared to have cleared it off the line but the referee adjudged the ball to have gone in.

Ghaly, who has recently recovered from injury, joined Lierse on a free transfer after his contract with Cairo giants Ahly expired in the summer.

He is an integral member of the squad of Egypt, for whom he scored in a 4-2 victory over Guinea in their last game of the World Cup qualifying Group G earlier this month.
