CAIRO: Egypt forward Mohamed Zidan came off the bench to score a superb goal in Hamburg s 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in a friendly game on Saturday.

Ruud van Nistelrooy opened the scoring for Real in the 25th minute when he connected with a low cross to notch home from close range.

Zidan was introduced in the second-half and he soon made an impact.

Seven minutes after restart, the former Mainz man grabbed Hamburg s equalizer after a splendid effort.

He gathered the ball on the edge of the area, cut inside to shrug off the attention of three challengers before firing a powerful drive into the top corner of the net.

Youngster Daniel Parejo scored Real s winner five minutes from time.

Zidan is keen to prove his worth under Hamburg s new manager Martin Jol in order to earn a place in the first-team next season.

The 26-year-old had limited opportunities last season and even fell out with Hamburg s former manager Huub Stevens.
