Sharjah tops ADNOC Pro League table after 3-0 victory over Khorfakkan


SHARJAH, 2nd October, 2022 (WAM) -- Sharjah maintained their leading position at the ADNOC Pro League as an outstanding display overpowered Khorfakkan 3-0 in matchweek 4 at Sharjah Stadium on Saturday.

It just took 16 minutes for the drama to start unfolding when Caio Lucas gave an early lead for his side after he had fired a ferocious long-range strike with his right foot into the top right corner of Ahmed Hamdan Alhosani's net.

Four minutes after the break, Luan Pereira cemented his side's lead when Khorfakkan's goalkeeper failed to properly clear the ball which hit the Brazilian forward and went into the back of the net, making it to 2-0 for Sharjah.

Only a minute before the hour mark, Pereira sealed the victory when he made a brilliant move from the midfield before setting up Miralem Pjanic, who calmly drilled the ball into the back of the net.

The result means that Sharjah are now in first place with 12 points, while Khorfakkan remain in 13th place with just one point.
