Ajayi nets goal no. 8 as Al Ahly outscore Tanta

Super Eagles forward Junior Ajayi was on target in Al Ahly ‘s 2-1 win against struggling Tanta SC in Monday’s Egyptian Premier League clash at the Cairo International Stadium. 

After a goalless first half, Ajayi broke the deadlock for the Red Devils on 61 minutes.

Substitute Marwan Mohsen doubled Ahly’s lead with a well taken strike in the 86th minute before Mohamed Gaber netted what proved to be just a consolation for Tanta in the first minute of stoppage time.

22-year-old Ajayi has now scored eight goals and registered nine assists in 23 league appearances for Al Ahly this season.

The forward made his debut for the national team in the Eagles 0-2 loss to Serbia in an international friendly in March.
