The early breakthrough saw Air Force retreat as Ahed enjoyed much of the ball for the remainder of the half. They prodded and probed but lacked cutting edge in front of goal, with the exception of a couple of half-chances.Air Force goalkeeper Fahid Taleb saved from a Nour Mansour free kick before denying Hussein Dakik after a curling Mohammad Haidar corner.The second half followed a similar pattern, with Air Force content to sit back and wait for their opportunity on the break.With Air Force pinned back, Hamadi was left to fend for himself up top, yet Ahed somehow contrived to hand their opponents a crucial second.
