Scorer of the goal that gave Al Ahly this year’s CAF Confederation Cup, Emad Meteb says the team deserved their victory.
Meteb’s stoppage-time goal gave the Egyptians side a dramatic Confederation Cup final victory over Ivorians Sewe Sport in Cairo last weekend.
The veteran striker struck in the sixth minute of injury time to earn Ahly a fortunate 1-0 second-leg victory against their opponents who wasted several great scoring chances.
Ahly, who lost the first leg 2-1 in Abidjan the previous weekend, won on away goals to lift the second-tier African club competition trophy for the first time.
Meteb, the lone link to the great Ahly teams of the previous decade, rose unchallenged to nod a Walid Soliman cross past goalkeeper Sylvain Ghobouo.
The final whistle sounded almost immediately and Juan Carlos Garrido darted on to the Cairo Stadium pitch and celebrated becoming the first Spanish coach to win a CAF title.
