‘Well deserved bronze medal’ – Al Ahly inspire Twitter meltdown



Against all odds, the Red Devils defeated the Brazilian side, and fans waxed lyrical about Pitso Mosimane’s men on social media

Egyptian Premier League side Al Ahly defeated Palmeiras 3-2 on penalties to finish third at the Fifa Club World Cup.

Having lost 2-0 to Bayern Munich in the semi-final thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s double, Pitso Mosimane’s team squared up against the Brazilian Serie A side for a chance to win the bronze medal.

With the tough encounter ending 0-0 at Al Rayyan’s Education City Stadium, kicks from the penalty spot were used in separating both teams.

Nevertheless, it was the Africans who reigned supreme with captain Mohamed El Shenawy saving two penalties in the shootout.

As expected, social media went into meltdown in praise of the reigning Caf Champions League winners.

A bronze medal in Aboutrika’s adopted country is quite poetic since this is what he also gave Al-Ahly in this tournament.
