Zaki blames Nyamirambo turf for knee injury

Egypt and Zamalek’s striker Amr Zaki has declared that his injury was caused by the artificial turf of Nyamirambo where APR lost to Zamalek 2-1 in the Champions League two weeks ago.

Egypt and Zamalek’s striker Amr Zaki has declared that his injury was caused by the artificial turf of Nyamirambo where APR lost to Zamalek 2-1 in the Champions League two weeks ago.

According to Egyptian football website filgoal, Zaki was confirmed out of Zamalek’s game against Ittihad Alexandria yesterday.

The Egypt ace missed Zamalek’s 1-0 win over Baladeya last weekend with a knee injury.
Midfielder Tamer Abdul-Hamid and goalkeeper Abdul-Wahed Al-Sayed also missed out on the Ittihad trip as the latter has a groin injury.

Abdul-Wahed Al-Sayed sustained a groin injury at Nyamirambo regional stadium two ago.  
The prolific hitman was left out of the team’s 18-man squad for the game against Baladeya after sustaining an injury in the 1-0 defeat to Ismaili. Zamalek are on the verge of advancing to the CAF Champions League round of 32 after claiming a 2-1 away victory over APR in the competition’s opener. 

The military side has to beat Zamalek in the second-leg in Cairo if they are to reach the next round.

Zamalek’s international trio Amr Zaki, Tarek Al-Sayed and Mahmoud Fathallah started the game despite their late arrival in Kigali after contributing to Egypt’s Nations Cup glory. The Cairo giants were looking to avenge their painful 4-1 defeat to APR in 2004 which threw them out of the Champions League preliminaries.
