Although Bayern Munich subdued Al Ahly in the FIFA Club World Cup, former Nigeria national team coach, Sunday Oliseh, lauded the tactical know-how of the African team.
According to Oliseh, Al Ahly coach, Pitso Mosimane, deserved to be commended for giving the European team a big fight in the semi finals.
The African champions headed into the encounter after securing victory over Qatari side Al Duhail on Thursday.
Al Ahly were, however, unlucky as they bowed to the superior powers of the Uefa Champions League winners, despite the efforts they put into the game.

Robert Lewandowski‘s brace ended the hope of the Egyptian side of clinching the title and inspired Bayern Munich to the final of the competition.
The Red Devils will now compete for the bronze medal with Copa Libertadores side Palmeiras on Thursday in Qatar.
Oliseh has taken to social media to praise the performance of Mosimane’s side despite their defeat at Al Rayyan Stadium.
“Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane made me so proud yesterday the way he tactically competed with a star-studded Bayern Munich,” Oliseh tweeted.
“He showed no complex and had a game plan. Great African Ambassador. Though they lost, for me, Al Ahly and Mosimane were the real winners last night. Bravo Bro!”
