AJMAN // Javad Kazemian showed Al Shabab what they are missing with a magical performance for Ajman. The Iranian striker, playing for the first time against his former club where he won the league title last season, was the best player by a long mile, though he failed to get on the scoreshee. Sameer Ibraheem scored the winner for Ajman in the dying seconds of stoppage time, tapping home a fumble by substitute Shabab keeper Salem Abdullah. But with a bit of luck, Kazemian should have won the game for the hosts a lot earlier.
Industrious and creative, Kazemian made the Shabab defence dance around in circles and broke through at will. He hit the crossbar in the seventh minute, tested the Shabab keeper Ismael Rabea with a blistering free-kick in the 11th and missed the target by a whisker in the 28th. Meanwhile in Khor Fakkan, Al Khaleej probably saved their coach Samir al Juwaily's neck with a stunning 5-2 win over Al Nasr.
Juwaily could have been headed for the exit door had Khaleej got any other result against the depleted Nasr. The hosts, struggling at the bottom of the table with just one point, cruised to their first win of the league in emphatic fashion with Mohammed Malallah opening the scores in the 11th minute. Abbas Moya (44) and Khalifa al Qaidi (45) made it 3-0 going into the the break, while Ibraheem Eid and Patrick Kazadi, who scored a penalty, rounded off the rout with goals in the last ten minutes.
Mohammed Omar scored the for Nasr (66 & 90), the second from the spot, to take his tally to eight for the season. firstname.lastname@example.org
