Fit again Nigeria international Junior Ajayi put up a dazzling display as Ahly defeated Maqassa 3-0 in a league game at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium on Thursday.
The forward scored a goal in Thursday’s win.
The club’s record signing Hussein El-Shahat opened the scoring in the 4th minute, while Ajayi added the second in the 29th minute.
The Nigerian smashed the ball into the top corner to convert Amr El-Sulaya’s brilliant pass past Adel.
Ajayi’s goal is his first since returning from a lengthy absence after recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him for around six months.
The Nigerian winger appeared for the first time since his injury in Ahly’s 1-1 draw against JS Saoura of Algeria last week and he made his first start against Maqassa.
Ramadan Sobhi completed the rout with 13 minutes remaining, giving his side a precious win.
The win takes Al Ahly to third spot with 30 points ahead of their clash against Wadi Degla on the 28th of January
