During the game, Al Ahly thought they found the back of the net in the second half through Ayman Ashraf.
However, his strike was controversially ruled out by VAR for an alleged foul in the build-up to the goal.
The incident caused an uproar among Al Ahly’s technical staff, players, and fans as it denied them the victory and the three points.
One of the players who objected to the decision was team skipper Mohamed El-Shennawy who was seen having a heated argument with the referee after the game.
As a result, the 32-year-old was handed a four-game suspension as well as an EGP 20,000 fine.

“Mohamed El-Shennawy’s incident wasn’t referred to us in the first place,” Yehia told ON Time Sports.
“I don’t want to talk too much about it because we have not taken any decision in that regard.
“Ahmed Megahed [current EFA president] has experience with FIFA regulations, so maybe that’s why we were not presented with the matter.
“We cannot talk about it because we did not make the decision,” he added.
El-Shennawy is now set to miss crucial Egyptian Premier League games against Arab Contractors, Pyramids FC, Smouha, and Tala’a El-Gaish.
Al Ahly are currently second in the Egyptian Premier League table with 17 points after seven games played.
