Alahly, CAF Champions League, Football

What a fantastic start from the Red Eagles to the new season as our boys booked their place in the CAF Champions League group stage with a 4-0 win on aggregate over Tunisia's US Monastir in the round of 32. 

The Red Eagles, who entered the second leg with a 1-0 advantage, confirmed their place in the group stage after defeating the Tunisian team 3-0 on Saturday night at home. 

Ahmed Abdelkader opened the score after 15 minutes with a great effort as he set himself inside the box and powered the ball past the goalkeeper. 

Hamdy Fathy has an excellent aerial ability and tonight was a massive chance for him to show that skill. 

Three minutes before half-time, Hamdy leapt higher than anyone else in the box to find the back of the net with a fantastic header. 

In the second half, Hamdy added another goal to secure our victory. 

Taher Mohamed Taher sent a brilliant cross and Hamdy met it with a flick header that found the back of the net to make the score 3-0. 

Thanks to tonight's big victory, the Red Eagles booked their place in the group stage for the 20th occasion in the club's history.
