Nahda emerge champions of the Mazda Professional Cup with late twist
Sun,26-Mar-17

Nahda emerged champions against all odds as they de-throned defending champions Al Nasr in a dramatic late victory at the Seeb stadium this past Friday.

Nasr had all the early momentum and that paid off as they scored in the 3rd minute itself. Abderrazaq attempted audaciously to score directly from the corner leaving the Nahda keeper scrambling and eventually spilling the ball. Rebound tucked away from no further than few yards, Al Nasr were in the lead.

The momentum swung both ways with Al Nasr still posing a greater threat but the score remained 1-0 at the break.

Al Nasr continued their dominance at the restart and looked to be in an excellent position when Wajid Al Lamki got himself sent off for a second yellow for dissent, moments after he got his first one for a bad tackle.

Ironically, things got better for Nahda from there, with the equaliser coming in the 67th minute after a shot was deflected and chipped over hapless keeper Ahmed Faraj.

A game that seemed destined to go towards penalties, it was a big surprise when Nahda took the lead in the 84th minute. Moments after nearly conceding from a shot from half-way, Faraj’s goal was breached once more as Nahda found their way in through the wings as the cut back was tapped in from within the 6 yard box.

There was very little time on the board and the Buraimi side saw out the game to emerge champions, much to the delight of their fans.
