Club Eagles beat United Victory 2-0 to claim first win of this year’s Male’ League.
Club Eagles made no changes to their starting lineup coming into this game against United Victory.
Ansar Ibrahim broke the deadlock with 27 minutes played when his shot from inside the box found the bottom corner of the net. Minutes later United Victory’s Ibrahim Nooradhdheen’s shot from distance goes over the bar.
In the 36th minute Club Eagles doubled their lead through Dutch striker Donovan.
As the first half ended United Victory were unable to test Club Eagles goal keeper. All they could do was shoot from distance and none of those attempts prove to be a threat to Club Eagles defense.
United Victory looked to be more threatening at the start of the second period. But it was Club Eagles who almost added another goal to their tally. In the 55th minute Ansar Ibrahim’s low cross from inside the area found Ahmed Naufal unmarked inside the six-yard box but his shot goes over the bar.
Just like the first half United Victory were unable to threaten Club Eagles defense.
This is very important win for Club Eagles as they were beaten narrowly by Maziya SRC in the opening game of Male’ League 2017.
