Al Jazira crowned UAE Super Cup champions for first time

Al Jazira claimed the first-ever UAE Super Cup title after defeating Shabab AlAhli 5-3 on penalities.



Mohammad Juma Eid put Shabab AlAhli in control after 64 minutes when he was sent through on goal by Abdalla Ali Hassan before lobbing the ball over the keeper.



Shabab AlAhli had looked set to lift the trophy after taking the lead in the 64th minute, but Abdalla Ramadan's 88-minute equalizer sent the game to spot-kicks.



Ramadan scored the equalizer when Joao Victor Santos Sa made a brilliant pass to the 23-year-old forward, who picked his spot and made it 1-1.



Al Jazira then prevailed on penalties to claim their first-ever Super Cup trophy, after Shabab AlAhli midfielder Abdalla Ali Hassan missed the fourth penalty.




Shabab AlAhli started the game so fiercely as early as after only seven minutes Harib Abdalla Suhail had the chance to give his side the lead but his effort was denied by goalkeeper Ali Khaseif on its way to the net.



Sixteen minutes later, Yahya AlGhassani came close to giving the advantage again for Shabab AlAhli after firing a left-foot shot from a very close range denied by Khaseif.



Al Jazira made their first attempt in the game after 35 minutes when M Hammed Rabii unleashed a powerful shot from the outside of the box, but his ball went beside the left bar.



Two minutes after the break, forward Mohammad Juma Eid came close to giving the advantage for Shabab AlAhli, but his shot was saved by Khaseif.
