Jordan’s Al Faisaly kicks Al Ahly from the Arab Championship | VIDEO

Al Ahly failed to overcome a resilient Al-Faisaly side once again, this time slumping to a 2-1 semi-final defeat to the Jordanians at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium to wave the Arab Championship goodbye on Wednesday.

Al-Faisaly took a 2-0 first-half lead via a header from Senegalese forward Dominique Mendy and an own-goal from veteran defender Ahmed Fathi, who played as a center-back, in the space of just 10 minutes.

Moroccan striker Walid Azaro bagged the consolation goal in the last minute of stoppage time after Ahly had wasted a slew of chances to get back into the game.

The defeat marked the second loss for Ahly in the Arab competition, which curiously came against Al-Faisaly in both occasion, with the Jordanians prevailing 1-0 in the Group A opener.

After missing out on the Arab Championship title, Egyptian league champions Ahly still have the Egypt Cup and the CAF Champions League to vie for, with an anticipated two-legged clash with Tunisia’s Esperance taking place this month.
