Junior Ajayi and his Al Ahly teammates will take on UEFA Champions League winners Bayern Munich in the semi-final of the FIFA Club World Cup.
Al Ahly’s place in the last four was cemented following their 1-0 win against Qatari club Al Duhail on Thursday.
Hussein El Shahat scored the only goal when he struck in the 30th minute of the game to send the CAF Champions League winners into the semis.
Nigerian striker Ajayi did not feature in the win against Al Duhail as he was an unused substitute.
Al Ahly will take on Bayern on Saturday while the second semi-final will see Brazil’s Palmeiras face Tigres of Mexico on Friday.
