Shabab Al Ahli got the better of defending champions Sharjah to clinch the Arabian Gulf Super Cup on Friday night.

In a match of fine margins, The Knights beat The King by a solitary goal, to wrest the title, at Al Nasr’s Al Maktoum Stadium.

After a goalless first half, Mohammed Marzooq Abdulla scored in stoppage time as Shabab Al Ahli won the first piece of silverware of the season.

It was a fifth Super Cup title for The Knights. They previously won it 2008, back-to-back in 2013 and 2014 and in 2016.

Earlier, before kick-off, there was a spectacular laser show after which the UAE Pro League paid tribute to the frontline heroes.
