πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦πŸ‘ BREAKING: Pitso Mosimane wins second CAF Champions League title with Al Ahly

Pitso Mosimane has etched his name in African football folklore after his Egyptian side Al Ahly defeated Zamalek 2-1 to win the CAF Champions League title in Cairo on Friday night.

Ahly snathed an ideal start when Amr El Sulya hit the net with a fine header in the near post as early as five minutes. But veteran Zamalek captain Shikabala struck a blinding shot to score a superb equalizer for 1-1 on 30 minutes.

The game went into the break with the score tied at 1-1. Zamalek came the closest to taking the lead in the second stanza, when Huseein El Shahat's fine shot hit the post on 54 minutes. But just a few minutes later, it was Ahly who endured a shot against the post, with Zizo's shot on 65 minutes.

The night's winner finally came for Africa's Team of the Century, Al Ahly, thanks to Mohamed 'Afsha' Magdy's fine volley into the bottom left corner with four minutes on the clock.

Mosimane's first CAFCL title was with South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns in 2016 with a 3-1 aggregate score over Zamalek in Alexandria, Egypt.
