Nogoom El-Mostakbal promoted to the Egyptian Premier League
Gomhoriat Shebin defeated Tersana 1-0 in Group B of the Egypt’s second division on Wednesday afternoon at Ittihad El Shorta Stadium in Cairo’s Abbassia district.
This victory granted Nogoom El-Mostakbal their first promotion to the Egyptian League first division, as they defeated Suez 1-0 at home in 6th of October City.
Tersana entered the game leading the group with 57 points, one point ahead of Nogoom El-Mostakbal, and they needed to achieve victory to seal promotion to the first division after nine years of absence.
Tersana’s mission was difficult, as their opponent, Gomhoriat Shebin, needed the victory to secure their stay in the second division, while El-Mostakbal’s opponents, Suez, already secured their position in the second division before the game.
On the other hand, El-Mostakbal needed to win their game and wait the other game’s result to know their fate.
