Khorfakkan went 3-1 down to visiting Sharjah who seem to have put the international halt to perfect use as they clearly outshone their rivals Khorfakkan away from home in the tenth round of ADNOC Pro League.
The guests snatched the lead in the 16th minute through Marcus Meloni who found himself in a very special position inside the box as a result of a smart execution of a corner kick taken by Bernard, before the fired the ball into Khorfakkan's net.
Eight minutes later Sharjah affirmed their superiority with another goal from Congolese Ben Malango who had received a perfect ground cross from Seif Rashif before his deflected shot found the back of the net.
Khorfakkan seemed different in the second half and placed the visitors under much pressure until they bounced back with a goal from Paulo Victor de Menezes in the 58th minute to maintain their hopes for a strong come back.
Having realized how dangerous Korfakkan can be, Sharjah started to get their act together and attack Khorfakkan to seal their victory, which they could do with a late third goal from Otabek Shukurov in the 81st minute.
With this win, Sharjah climbed back to sixth place in the table, one point clear of Khorfakkan who fell to seventh on 15 points following their defeat.
