Junior Ajayi was on target for Al Ahly in their 6-0 friendly thumping of second division club El Gouna on Tuesday.
The Nigeria youth striker opened the scoring for the Red Devils with a close-range header, taking advantage of Saleh Gomaa’s accurate cross. Gomaa was again involved when he sent a through ball to Ahmed Hamoudi who slotted in the second for his team.
The match was meant to prepare the team for their crucial CAF Champions League encounter against Tunisia’s Esperance in the quarterfinal.
The game played in Al Ahly’s training ground at Mokhtar El-Tetsh Stadium featured plenty of the first team’s reserves and the ones with the least playing time, besides others who were rested in El-Gaish tie.
