Asamoah Gyan scored his second goal for the Dubai outfit, as they thrashed Emirates Club 4-0 in the Arabian Gulf League
Asamoah Gyan required just four minutes on Friday to slot home his 96th goal in the Arabian Gulf League, as the Red Knights kicked off their title defence with a 4-0 triumph against Emirates Club which required a late flourish to gain gloss.
Gyan was however taken off before the hour mark, amidst cheers from the loyal fans of the club who were impressed with his contribution in the game.
Al Ahli scored the other goals through Al Hammadi, who got a brace after coming on from the bench and the other goal came from the boot of Ahmed Khalil, also a substitute
The 30-year-old striker came off the bench to score on his debut against former side Al Ain last week in the Arabian Gulf Cup.
And made a cameo appearance for Al Ahli on Tuesday when they beat Al Nasr 2-1 to win the Super Cup.
Tangible improvement will need to be registered if the striker is to edge out fellow scorer Ahmed Khalil once again, after he was benched for the midweek Arabian Gulf Super Cup-victory, in Thursday’s challenging engagement across Dubai at Al Nasr.
Asamoah Gyan is on loan from Shanghai SIPG in the Chines Super League.
