Thank you for reading the news about Overestimating ‘very normal’ Al Ahly reason for defeat, says Al-Duhail striker and now with the details
Dubai - Yasmine El Tohamy - Al-Duhail striker Almoez Ali claims that the reason for their defeat to Al Ahly is that they overestimated the Reds.
The Reds have qualified for the semi-finals of the 2020 Club World Cup after beating hosts Al Duhail 1-0, thanks to Hussein El-Shahat’s strike.

In the 30th minute, Walter Bwalya stole the ball from Karim Boudiaf just outside the penalty area and passed it to Hussein El-Shahat, whose low-driven shot hit the back of the net.
And Qatar star Ali believes that if it wasn’t for this chance, the Reds wouldn’t have won the game, labeling the African champions a ‘normal team’.
“We have respected Al Ahly too much and overestimated them. They just took advantage of one mistake and scored,” Ali said after the game.
“We have entered the second-half with more enthusiasm and gave them the respect they deserve. They didn’t have any chances and defended all the second-half.
“We should have done that across the 90 minutes. We should have fought harder and not to respect them more than the necessary.
