Egypt forward Mahmoud ‘Kahraba’ scored a fine goal that veteran keeper Essam El-Hadary failed to keep away to help Ittihad Jeddah beat Al Taawon in the Saudi league on Thursday.

Playing against Egypt teammates El-Hadary and winger Mostafa Fathi, Kahraba was the one who led his side to victory with his winner on 52 minutes.

With the result tied at 1-1, Kahraba ran onto a long through-ball down the left before cutting inside into the area and unleashing a right-footed strike, which keeper El-Hadary got a hand to but eventually failed to keep away.

The three Egyptians on the pitch all started for their respective sides, with only Kahraba being substituted with just three minutes remaining till the end of regular time.

This is the third league goal for Kahraba, on loan from parent club Zamalek, this season as he now tops Ittihad’s scoring charts.

The trio has been named for Egypt’s crucial World Cup home qualifier against Congo next month.
