He faced a familiar face on the other end, with Bafana teammate Fagrie Lakay starting for Pyramids, who had replaced Egyptian Premier League winners Zamalek in the final after the White Nights refused to partake.

Al Ahly qualified as Egypt Cup winners and – just like last year – the Club of Century secured the trophy, this time with a 1-0 win in extra-time.

The game was dead-logged at 0-0 after 90 minutes, but Ali Maaloul scored the only goal of the night in the 96th minute from the penalty spot.
