Late Neill winner sends Al Jazira top
Al Jazeera assumed leadership of the UAE League after Lucas Neill's late goal sealed a thrilling 4-3 victory at Ajman.
Strikes from Ebrahim Toure and Salim Kerkar just before half-time put Ajman in the ascendancy and although Bare pulled a goal back two minutes into the second period, Toure's second goal of the game in the 56th minute had Ajamn seemingly on course for three points. However, the visitors hit back through Abdulla Mousa and Jumaa Abdullah before Neil grabbed the winner eight minutes from the end.
Al Wasl are up to second, three points behind Al Jazeera, following a 2-1 win at Emirates. Pejman Nouri gave the hosts a the lead just before the half-hour mark but goals from Wahid Ismael and Edson secured the win for Al Wasl.
Finally, Al Nasr thrashed bottom side Al Ahly 4-0 with Rodrigo Careca, Humaid Abbas, Younis Ahmed, Mark Bresciano all on target.
