By Johnny Edward: Former Nigeria U-23s striker Junior Ajayi says he is prepared for more challenges after scoring his third league goal in the Egyptian Premier League, Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN) reports.
Ajayi scored for Al Ahly in the 65th minute as the Red Devils defeated Misr El-makasa 2-1 on Sunday in his 13th league game this season.
John Antwi had opened scoring for the Misr El-makasa from the penalty spot in the 27th minute.
Walid Soliman’s 84th-minute effort sealed the win for the reigning Premier League champions and also extended their unbeaten run to eight games in the Egyptian top-flight this season.
“ 1 GOAL, 1 ASSIST. Great game! Great team! Great fans! I thank God. More challenges and victories ahead. Up @AlAhly #YallaYaAhly #Russia2018,” Ajayi tweeted.
Al Ahly remain top of the Egyptian league with 45 points from 18 league games and they face El Raja in their next game on Thursday.
