Zamalek throws Enyimba out of CAF Champions League

16 August 2016, 11:41Israel Ojoko

Cairo - Nigeria Premier League club Enyimba have crashed out of the CAF Champions League after conceding a 1-0 defeat to Zamalek in Egypt.

Enyimba needed an outright victory after failing to secure any points in their last matches.

The ‘People’s Elephant’ did not improve from their last game, but managed to hold Zamalek to a goalless draw into the break.

Zamalek, who have been dominating and calling goalkeeper Theophilus Afelokhai to duty on many occasions broke the deadlock when Bassem Morsy struck from the penalty spot, after Enyimba defense was caught lapping leading to a handball inside the danger area.

That goal handed the Egyptian club all three points and a ticket into the next round, as Enyimba were unable to bounce back despite to introduction of top scorer Mfon Udoh in the 75th minute.

News24 reported that Enyimba described the sudden rescheduling of a CAF Champions League tie at Zamalek as "highly unfair", arguing that they do not have enough players to play the match on Saturday. The game was later moved to Monday.

Enyimba had sent six of their players to the NPFL tour of Spain. The players however left Spain on Friday and headed straight to Egypt for the game against Zamalek.

The six players are Theophilus Afelokhai, Chima Akas, Chinedu Udoji, Bassey Ezekiel, Joseph Osadiaye, and Oluwadamilare Ojo.
