Yehia promises CAF victory


Yehia’s side lost 2-0 to arch-rivals Al Ahly in the Egyptian Super Cup on Sunday night, a week after a 2-1 defeat against the Red Devils in the Champions League.

“On Sunday, Zamalek will register the first three points in their African campaign against Dynamos.”

Meanwhile, Egyptian kingpins Al Ahly have been boosted by the news that Angolan winger Gilberto could be fit to face ASEC Mimosas in Saturday’s CAF Champions League tie.

Gilberto missed out on the Reds’ Egyptian Super Cup triumph against Zamalek last Sunday due to an ankle injury.

The influential winger was unlikely to catch up with the ASEC game initially, but Ahly’s official site said that he has made great progress over the past couple of days.
