In the minds of the general public, Al Ahly, the team led by South African-born Pitso Mosimane, had already been eliminated from contention for the Egyptian league title after losing their game against Asmara on Sunday.
On extra time the other day, something incredible happened. By defeating ENPPI 2-1 thanks to two stoppage time goals from Pitso Mosimane, Al Ahly ended their winless streak in the Egyptian Premier League!
In the 95th minute, Maaloul put Al Ahly ahead, and only two minutes later, he put them ahead again.
Stoppage time goals have long been Al Ahly's signature. All of the club's youth coaches make it a point to teach their charges that Al Ahly never gives up until the very end. "Red shirt spirit" is how Egyptian media refer to it.
A number of spectators were moved to laughter by the team's tenacity in the face of overwhelming odds. A three-minute span in which two goals are scored in the last seconds of a game sounds out of this world.
