LIVE: Al Ahly v Al Masry | Egyptian League

21:00 Cairo time | 15:00 ET Canada-USA

Venue: Borg El-Arab stadium, Alexandria

Referee: Mahmoud El-Banaa

Three young players were singled out for special praise after Ahly crushed Ittihad 3-0 on Sunday to return to winning ways after two consecutive 0-0 draws.

Striker Ahmed Gharib, 20, showed predatory instincts by scoring twice while winger Zeyad Tarek, who already has some first-team experience, stole the show with a delightful curling effort.

Left-back Mohamed Ashraf was also lauded for a superb display down the wing, with one of his inviting deep crosses helping Gharib head home the third early in the second half.

Ahly took a decision to experiment with some youth players after virtually losing hopes of competing for the league title, with arch-rivals Zamalek in pole position to retain their crown with only five rounds left.

The Red Devils sit third in the table with 59 points, 10 behind leaders Zamalek, who played a game more.
