Al Ahly targets FIFA club World cup

Al Ahly captain Mohamed El Shenawy is determined to lead his troops to the 2023 FIFA Club World Cup final.
The African champions are set to take on Saudi Arabian giants Al Ittihad in Friday’s quarter-final match at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah.
Al Ahly have never reached the final of the global tournament, but they have finished third three times in 2006, 2020, and 2021.
“This marks my fourth participation in the tournament, a significant event for our club,” El Shenawy told the club’s official website.


“Our ambition this time is to advance to the final, building on our previous achievement of securing the bronze medal.
“Ahly players have gained valuable experience in major tournaments, having previously faced big teams such as Real Madrid and Bayern Munich,” the experienced goalkeeper added.
“This seasoned exposure has prepared us for challenging confrontations in the upcoming matches.”


Morocco giants Raja Casablanca and TP Mazembe of DR Congo are the only African clubs to have reached the Club World Cup final.
