CAF League: Zamalek Coach Rates Enyimba Game Tough

Mohamed Helmy, the Zamalek of Egypt head coach, has said that his side’s next game against Enyimba in the CAF Champions League group stage would be a difficult one, asking his players to concentrate on the match.

This is coming after Zamalek beat Ittihad El-Shorta 3-2 in the Egyptian Premier League on Saturday.

Zamalek looked to be cruising to a comprehensive win when they took a 3-0 lead in Saturday’s game, but El-Shorta threatened to stage a remarkable comeback with two late goals.

“Players have to learn from conceding two goals during the El-Shorta game as they were ours to lose,” Helmy was quoted as saying on the club’s official website.

“El-Shorta game is a good lesson for the players ahead of the CAF Champions League game against Enyimba,” he added.

“Enyimba is expected to be very difficult so we have to concentrate on the game,” the Zamalek coach said.

The Cairo giants are scheduled to launch their CAF Champions League group stage campaign when they face Enyimba on 19 June in Port Harcourt
