Emirates 2:4 Al Jazira. AG Cup. Match Summary

uae.agleague.ae: 10 October 2016
Emirates threw away a two-goal lead to lose 4-2 at the hands of Al Jazira in Round 5 of the Arabian Gulf Cup. A seemingly comfortable advantage in Ras Al Khaimah had been mounted thanks to goals from Alhusain Saleh and Khaled Khamis, but the visitors from Abu Dhabi turned the game around through Ahmed Rabia, Khalfan Mubarak, Jefferson Farfan and Ahmed Al Hashmi to move up to 3rd place in Group A with 8 points. 
The hosts took the lead after 16 minutes as the productive Khaled Khamis cut back from the byline for Alhusain Saleh to sweep a strong finish past Al Jazira goalkeeper Khalid Alsenaani, but unfortunately for Emirates the goalscorer had to be withdrawn in the 27th minute after suffering a hamstring strain, with Salem Saeed coming on in his place. Undeterred by the disruption to the team, in the 35th minute Emirates doubled their lead as the provider of the first goal turned scorer of the second; Khaled Khamis confidently skipping into the box and netting from an unlikely angle, with the ball going in off the inside of the far post. Just before half time, though, Al Jazira pulled themselves back into the contest with the award of a 45th-minute penalty for a foul in the box by Khaled Shamarikh on Park Jong Woo. Ahmed Rabia was the man to step up and dispatch the spot kick with aplomb, making it 2-1 at the half-time break. 
The goal right before the stroke of half-time took the wind out of Emirates’ sails and boosted Al Jazira’s confidence, and it was the visitors who found the net first after the restart to draw level at 2-2; Khalfan Mubarak running onto a pass from Sultan Bargash and burying a strike past Ibrahim Abdulla in the 54th minute. Emirates let the game slip further from their grasp as Al Jazira found a way to seize the lead for the first time in the game; Jefferson Farfan putting them 3-2 up in the 83rd minute, and deep into stoppage time the visitors rounded off their comeback at 4-2 with a cool and calm penalty from substitute Ahmed Al Hashmi.
