For the fourth time in its history, Al-Ahly achieves third place in the Club World Cup

Al-Ahly was able to achieve third place in the Club World Cup after defeating Urawa Red Diamonds of Japan, 4-2, in the match that was held on Friday at Prince Abdullah Al-Faisal Stadium.

The Red Giants started the match perfectly after taking the lead with goals from Yasser Ibrahim and Percy Tao, but before the end of the first half, Jose Kante reduced the gap, and then the Japanese club opened the second half with an equalizer goal through Alex Schultz.

Marcel Kohler’s squad then rose up and succeeded in scoring the third goal through Ali Maaloul. Then the Tunisian returned and missed a penalty kick in the 75th minute, until he scored the fourth goal himself in the last minute.

With this victory, Al-Ahly wins its fourth bronze medal in history, having achieved it previously in 2006, 2020 and 2021.

Al-Ahly lost third place in last year’s edition after losing to Brazilian Flamengo 4-2 in Morocco.

Al-Ahly will be immortalized in history as having achieved the most bronze medals in the history of the Club World Cup, especially since this was the last edition of the tournament in its current system.

After this match, Al-Ahly will head to the Emirates to compete in the Egyptian Super Cup in its new look, then rest for a month for Egypt to compete in the African Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire.
