Zamalek manager Momen Soliman announced the players who will be making the trip to Alexandria ahead of the return leg of the CAF Champions League against Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.

After a disappointing 3-0 loss in South Africa on Saturday, Zamalek will be looking for a near-perfect performance to overturn the result and win the Champions League title.

The 18-man squad included Zamalek keeper Ahmed El-Shennawy who was injured and replaced by back-up keeper Mahmoud Gennesh during the first leg.

Zamalek Squad:

Goalkeepers: Ahmed El Shennawy, Mahmoud Abdel-Rehim “Gennesh”, Omar Salah

Defenders: Ali Gabr, Ahmed Dewidar, Ali Fathi, Islam Gamal, Ramzy Khaled, Ahmed Tawfik

Midfielders: Tarek Hamed, Marouf Youssef, Ibrahim Salah, Mahmoud Abdel-Razik “Shikabala”, Mostafa Fathi, Ayman Hefny

Forwards: Bassem Morsy, Stanley Ohawuchi, Emmanuel Mayuka

Mahmoud Hamdy, Salah Rico, Mahmoud Donga, Mohamed Nassef and Osama Ibrahim, who are not registered in the team’s African squad, will also take part in the training camp.

Zamalek will face the South African side at Borg El-Arab Stadium on Sunday at 20:00 CLT.

In addition to being a football/soccer and basketball enthusiast, I am currently pursuing a combined BS/MD degree at VCU. I also currently work as a Pharmacy Technician in my spare time.
