Al-Ahly of Egypt sets local and international record

Al-Ahly men team of Egypt won the Egyptian local double after gaining the cup Friday defeating the emerging team, El-Shams in the final 3-0 (25-22, 25-23, 25-22), two weeks after retaining the league for the third successive time. The Egyptian outfit added the Egyptian Cup to the League, African Cup of Clubs’ Champions, Super Cup and Arab Cup of Clubs, all gained in an astonishing period of 11 months of additions to their trophy cabinet.

The final was very exciting since Shams was not a team which could be easily defeated and displayed a good performance especially in the second set. The young star Ahmed Salah and the experienced setter Maged Moustafa led Ahly in the critical points to narrowly win the three sets.
