Al Ahly’s Amr El-Sulya expressed his delight after his side qualified for the CAF Champions League semi-finals on Friday.

The Reds managed to overcome Tanzanian giants Simba 2-0 (3-0 on aggregate) on Friday to make their way into the last four of the competition.

Amr El-Sulya opened the scoring for Al Ahly in the second half before Mahmoud Kahraba dispatched a late penalty to put the tie to bed.

They are now set to meet the winner between Petro Atletico de Luanda and TP Mazembe in the semi-finals next month.

Goalscorer El-Sulya spoke after the game and reflected on the win, saying: “It was a tough game against a really good team.

“Marcel Koller asked us to drop back in the first half and find spaces on the counter-attack but we changed our setup in the second half.

“We aim to win the title again. But we also need to focus on the Egyptian Premier League because we have a tough run of games coming up,” he added.
