- Tons of soccer fans have since headed online to share their thoughts on Al Ahly once again not making it to the finals
South African born football coach Pitso Mosimane's Egyptian team Al Ahly just missed the opportunity to play in the Fifa World Cup finals after they suffered a thorough defeat at the hands or rather feet of Bayern Munich at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Doha, Qatar, on Monday this week.
While many hopes were high after Mosimane was able to get the team to the semi-finals, it was soon deflated as Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski scored the first goal against Al Ahly in the first 17 minutes of the game.
While the Egyptian side tried valiantly to stand their ground, the team suffered a big blow when Ali Ma’aloul got injured and was replaced by Yasser Ibrahim. Not too long thereafter Lewandowski was back at it and scored yet another brilliant goal, securing the win for the European champions.
Meanwhile, football fans have had this to say about the match:
"Egyptians are out to show us their true colors. How many club world cups does #AlAhly have? Busy pretending like they never lose. They must leave Pitso Mosemane alone."
"2nd Half proved why Al Ahly is the best team in the African continent and why Pitso Mosimane is the best Head Coach in the continent. They fought like true warriors. #FifaClubWorldCup #fifacwc #AlAhly"
Briefly.co.za also reported that South Africans could not be more proud of coach Pitso Mosimane who is proving himself to be very talented and committed to excellence when it comes to his craft as an esteemed football coach.
Many of them recently headed to various social media sites to congratulate the South African coach on his success with the international team. A lot of them also shared messages of support and encouragement with him.
