In the FIFA Club World Championship 2006 opening match against Auckland City FC of New Zealand on 10 December 2006, he scored the first goal, helping Al-Ahly to a 2–0 win. In the semi-final on 13 December 2006, Al Ahly faced South American champions Internacional, and Flávio played and scored an equaliser with a header in the second half but Al-Ahly eventually lost the match 1–2.
After having a very unsuccessful first season with the team during which he scored only one goal in the league, and being jeered by fans at many times, most notably when he missed a penalty kick against rivals El Zamalek in the African Champions League, Flávio had a very successful second season in 2006–2007, seeing him top the goalscorers chart of the Egyptian Premier League with 17 goals, a single goal ahead of international Egyptian teammate Emad Moteab. He proved to be instrumental in Al Ahly's formation in the next years, scoring many vital goals in critical moments. Generally Flávio kept an extremely low profile and rarely appears in the media or give any press statements. Such attitude is highly appreciated by his club administration, since it agrees with the club's policies.
In his last season with Al Ahly (2008–2009), Flávio managed to score Al Ahly's only goal during the Egyptian Premier League play-off against Ismaily, handing the title to Al Ahly for the fifth time in row and rewarding himself with the second personal title of the Egyptian Premier League Top Goalscorer, for the third time as a foreign player in the Egyptian Premier League history after John Utaka with Ismaily during the 2000–2001 season, then Flávio himself formerly during the 2006–2007 season.
At his time with Al Ahly he was very known in Egypt for his heading accuracy and it was known that Al Ahly played a tactic that Flávio Amado's fellow Angola national football team and Al Ahly teammate Gilberto would play a long ball to him from the sides, and Flávio Amado would score with his head. He did this on multiple occasions, earning Al Ahly multiple titles domestically and continentally.
