The “old-comer” Ahmed Al-Attas quickly submitted his credentials with Al-Jazira, only 24 hours after joining, by leading the team to achieve an exciting “remontada”, after turning his 1-2 delay into a 3-2 victory over Al-Wasl, the day before yesterday, in The conclusion of the first round of the ADNOC Professional League.
Al-Attas played four heroic roles, although he undertook one training with the team, after the consensual termination of his contract with Sharjah, and his joining Al-Jazira with a contract that extends until the end of next season, but the player who grew up on Al-Jazira, restored hope again for the title holder, by reaching 23 points, by seven Al-Ain is the leader with 30 points.
Al-Attas was also the important “turning point” in the match, when he removed Al-Wasl’s third goal ball from Uruguayan Araujo, and Al-Attas managed to clear it before it crossed the goal line. Al-Attas also scored the equalizer, which was scored by Malian Abdallah Diaby, before returning and passing a wonderful ball to substitute Ahmed Fawzy, for the latter to score the third goal.
Al-Attas proved that he is a winning deal in the Al-Jazira offensive line, and that he is able to compensate for the absence of the team’s historical scorer, Ali Mabkhout. In a press statement after the end of the match, Al-Attas thanked Al-Jazira management for giving him the opportunity to return to playing with the team, and said: “I am happy with our success in turning our delay into a victory.” And about saving him the opportunity to achieve a goal for Al-Wasl, and his contribution to the victory, he said: “This is thanks to the prayers of the parents, and I see that the journey is long, and we have not achieved anything.”
