Al Ahly wins CAF Confederations Cup

Al Ahly struck late to break Sewe Sport hearts and claim its first CAF Confederations Cup in the most dramatic circumstances.

The Egyptian side trailed 2-1 from the first leg and Sewe Sport appeared set to become the first Cote d'Ivoire club to lift the cup since its inception in 2004.

That is until Emad Moteab's header in the sixth minute of stoppage-time sent the majority of the Cairo International Stadium crowd wild as Al Ahly triumphed on the away goals rule.

Al Ahly is one of Africa's most successful clubs having won the continent's Champions League eight times.

The Egyptian outfit dropped into the CAF Confederations Cup this season, however, after being knocked out of the top-tier competition.

Sewe Sport looked like inflicting another defeat on it in the second leg as the visitor carved out all the early chances.

Souleymane Dembele hit the crossbar in the first half with a powerful effort, but as the finish line came into view, Sewe Sport dropped deeper towards its own goal.

That invited increasing levels of pressure from Al Ahly, and Moussa Yedan had an effort cleared off the line early in the second half as the host pushed forward.

Al Ahly eventually made the breakthrough when Moteab found space in the box to meet Walid Soliman's right-wing cross with the header that underlined the value of Trezeguet's away goal in Abidjan.
