Nejmeh's hopes of progressing from their AFC Cup group were dealt a major blow Tuesday as the Beirut side fell 2-1 to Bahraini opponents Al-Muharraq.Despite the two-goal deficit, Nejmeh continued to venture forward and were rewarded with a spot-kick on the hour mark.With Hussein still clearly rattled from his earlier miss, Khalid Takaji pulled rank for the second spot-kick.The mercurial midfielder confidently stroked home his effort, but it proved immaterial as Muharraq held on for a vital win which lifted them above Nejmeh and into second place in Group C.
