Santos cut Al Ahly's rule of the continent

THE dominance of Egyptian giants, Al Ahly, on the African continent came down with a thud last weekend.

The giant-killing feat which has had tongues wagging from the Cape to Cairo was achieved by the unfashionable Santos FC of Angola in a Caf Confederations Cup game.

Ahly took a 3-0 lead into the return match and even the absence of star midfielder Mohamed Aboutraika was not expected to prevent them reaching the group phase.

But a Santos team competing in Africa for the first time this year had other ideas and triumphed 3-0 in Luanda to level the aggregate score before winning the fourth-round tie 6-5 on penalties.

This exciting tie's highlights form part of the African Soccer Television show's package when it airs on SABC1 Sport's Laduma programme on Sunday.

The Girabola league from Angola also featured Acedemica do Soyo who lost to Primeiro de Agosto 3-0 and Santos FC who beat Interclube 1-0.

And, the "2010 We are ready" campaign, takes a look at the tourism side of the North-West.
