The Egyptian giants beat Seattle Sounders of the United States 1-0 on Saturday to advance to their fifth semi-final of Club World Cup.

"We will face the toughest team in the World," Kahraba told reporters after game.

“But there is nothing impossible and we will do our best against Real Madrid and we hope to win the game and reach the final,” the Egyptian winger added.

Ahly midfielder Mohamed “Afsha” Magdi came off the bench in the 62nd minute to score the winner against Seattle Sounders in the 88th minute.

It’s the second time for Ahly to play against the European Champions as the Red Devils lost to Bayern Munich 2-0 in the semi-final of the 2020 edition.

The Cairo giants, who are making their eighth appearance – the third in a row – in the Club World Cup, have already claimed three bronze medals in the 2006, 2020 et 2021 editions.

Real Madrid are the most successful club in the history of the Club World Cup, having won four titles in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
