Two Egyptians make Arab Club Championship Team of the Week

Zamalek captain and vice captain, Shikabala and Hazem Emam, were the only Egyptians included in the Arab Club Championship Team of the Week.

Mahmoud ‘Shikabala’ Abdel-Razek scored a wonderful goal for the White Knights in their 2-2 draw with Fath Union Sport (FUS) while Hazem Emam assisted the goal 10 minutes after coming on as a second half substitute.

Zamalek is the only team to have two players in the lineup, which also saw the inclusion of Fath’s Lamine Diakit√© who scored a brace against the White Castle.

Zamalek’s next opponents, Lebanese side Al-Ahed, have Ahmad Zreik in the lineup while their final group stage opponent Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia were represented by Yahya Al-Shehri.

Jordanian side Al Faisaly, who defeated Al Ahly 1-0 in their first group game, are represented by their goalkeeper Moataz Yassin. Ahmed Gasmi of Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey, who will face Al Ahly in their final game, was included in the team.

Group A resume their group stage matches on Tuesday, while Group B and Group C will play on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
