At 36, Ahmed Hassan is still proving that he is made of gold after firing Zamalek to a 3-1 win over Arab Contractors in the 7th matchday of the Egyptian Premier League on Wednesday.
The Pharaohs skipper broke the deadlock in the 21st minute from the spot after Mahmoud Abdel-Razek “Shikabala” was fouled in the area.
Then in the 51st minute he restored Zamalek’s lead with a glancing header at the far post converting an amazing swerving long pass from Shikabala.
The double increase his tally of goals to six in as much games to climb to the second place in the scorers’ chart just a goal behind leader Hosni Abd-Rabou from Ismaily.
Additionally to his goals, his flair and determination gave Zamalek the spark they needed to claim three precious points in the league resumption after a stunning 2-1 defeat against Ittihad El-Shorta in the previous matchday.
