An Egyptian club Modern Future have now moved to the final of the ongoing Super Cup after the club survived 34 historic penalty shootout in the semi-final stage of the competition at Abu Dhabi’s Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium.
The penalty ensued after regulation time between Modern Future and Pyramid ended 0-0 draw on Monday.
At the end of the kicks, Modern Future came out tops.
Despite the long shootout, it was well short of the 54 penalties taken when Washington FC beat Bedlington Terriers 2524 in a local cup match in England last year.
Also, a 2005 Namibian Cup match between KK Palace and Civics featured 48 penalties.
Back to the Egypt’s Super Cup, Future will now face either Al Ahly or Ceramica Cleopatra in the final.
Al Ahly and Cleopatra fate will be decided after their semi-final berth.
