ENPPI Douse Arrows

Sports ENPPI Douse Arrows

Red Arrows dreams of further advancing in the Caf Confederations Cup are looking very dim after they were thumped 4-0 on Saturday night in Cairo by hosts ENPPI.

Four goals before the hour-mark from ENPPI sunk Arrows on their first trip to Cairo and in the latter’s debut match against any Zambian opposition.

Ayman Saied put ENPPI ahead in the 21st minute to give the club sponsored by the Egyptian petroleum company of the same name a 1-0 lead into the break.

Adel Mostafa made it 2-0 on 50 minutes before Ahmed Raouf completed their rout of Arrows with a brace in a space of four minutes in the 56th and 60th minutes respectively.

Arrows have pride to keep at home when they host ENPPI in the return leg at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka on May 2.

Meanwhile, Zesco United will try and give Zambia some glimmer of hope tonight of staying in the continental club competition when they face Djoliba Ac of Mali in Bamako.

The two clubs clash in the Caf African Champions League, 2nd round, 1st leg pre-group stage at 18:00 tonight.

  1. Too bad. Hope is not lost yet though knowing Zambian teams fighting spirit is gone. If they do not make it, thanks for taking the team this far after a long time

  2. before they left for Egypt, they played GBFC and almost everyone critisized the way they played and their coach was praying that a draw will be better for them, surely how can such a team progress to the next round? anyway, let those boys come back and concetrate on local games and i wonder if they can play the way they played last season,

  3. The coach is useless. The lead 2-0, against Ocean boys and lost 2-0. In Egpty, they were simply supposed to defend and play a closed game.

  4. ZESCO ARE PROVING TO BE ONE OF THE BEST IN AFRCA. SO FAR NO LOSS AWAY FROM HOME. SURELY ITS GOOD RECORD. NO LOSS AWAY.
