Mahmoud El Saoud
Responsible for the game's first goal, second goal was out of his hands.
Missed the offside trap that could have prevented Monterrey's first goal.
Did well in new position as defensive midfielder, holding Ayovi mostly away from goal.
Failed in marking Delgado for most of the match which led to chances.
Average performance if not for some strong attacking play early in the first half.
Mohamed Abo Trika
Clearly the team's most dangerous attacker, ran into a wall of saves by Orozco.
Tenacious tackler in midfield, had a decent partnership with Hesham.
Defender was hampered by injury throughout the tournament, costly mistake led to game's first goal.
Abdalla El Said
Missed out on key opportunities that could have leveled the game. Flopped throughout the tournament.
Ineffective in possession, gave away too many balls in failed passes.
Missed a pair of clear-cut chances that could have changed the game.
Orozco was spectacular in goal and kept Al-Ahly off the board during critical lapses in the match.
Didn't attack or defend as much as Monterrey fans are used to seeing the former Atlas man do.
Forced Al-Ahly to go through the wings to mount their attacks.
Alongside Mier, did mostly okay to keep attack at bay.
A springboard for most Al-Ahly attacks on the wing throughout the game.
Mostly unnoticed offensively, was attacked throughout by wingers.
Did well to block attacks in the middle most of the match.
Steady in midfield, provided an outlet for Monterrey's counterattacking.
A breakout tournament for the CWC's biggest surprise. Expect him in Europe soon.
Becomes first player on a Mexican team to score three goals in a single CWC.
A. de Nigris
Served as decoy for Delgado and Corona to filter in attack.
