Al Wasl's two goals in the first two rounds were scored by two of the new signings, as Brazilian Ramiro snatched the winning goal against Baniyas in the first round, while Uruguayan Araujo scored his team's goal in the draw against Khorfakkan in the second round.
New signings have also secured Sharjah two wins in the first two matchweeks; a goal from the Brazilian Bernard sealed their first round victory over Ittihad Kalba, whereas their game against Al Dhafra was decided by the goal from Congolese striker Ben Malango who has joined from Moroccan league.
With Al Ain, Tunisian Yassine Meriah did not wait long to find his way to the net. Despite being a defender, he managed to score a header against Emirates in the second round, amid a remarkable performance by Argentine Guanca, who posed great danger with his impressive passes.
Moreover, Ajman's Colombian striker Mina didn't wait long to leave his first mark as he only needed two minutes to score his first goal with his new team paving the way for a 3-0 victory over Al Nasr in the first round.
