Ghanaian midfielder Moro Salifu came off the bench to score one of the penalty kicks for Al Ittihad in their victory over Pharco in the Egyptian Cup quarter-final clash on Monday.
Moro, 24, converted Ittihad’s 4th kick in the game to keep their hopes alive after El Sayed Salem had missed the third kick for the home side.
Ittihad eventually won the shootouts 7-6 after Pharco, the away side, missed two crucial kicks.
The regulation time had seen the time end 2-2 after Kingsley Sokari had scored from a penalty rebound for Pharco inside the 97th minute to send the game to penalties.
Moro, who spent 3 seasons at Bechem United, has been one of the regular starters for Ittihad this season in the league, starting 18 of the 20 league games played so far.
During last season’s campaign, he played 1,720 minutes and scored a goal as Ittihad finished 12th on an 18-club league table.
