Rangers lose two star players for Zamalek battle

RANGERS International of Enugu will today at the Nnam- di Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu host Zamalek of Egypt in the return-leg of the second round of CAF Champions League round of 32.

Godwin Aguda made it 2-1 for the home side, but there were no more goals in the encounter. They had earlier lost the first leg 4-1 in Egypt.

Olusesi got Rangers' first goal of the game in the final minutes of the first half when he pounced on a loose ball following some dismal marking by Zamalek's Ali Gabr and Islam Gamal, as Olusesi to beat Gennesh.

Substitute Zamalek striker Bassem Morsi hit the equalizer in the 71st minute to make the hosts' mission more hard having headed into the round of 32 return-leg trailing 4-1 from Cairo. Rangers could not celebrate the 2-1 victory as it could not guarantee them progress.

Many nations owe vast sums of money from past years, and it is very unfair to the United States. The German chancellor and the US president will meet Friday in the White House.

As in the first leg in Lubumbashi, CAPS United's goalkeeper, Edmore Sibanda, stood firm to deny the DR Congo giants a chance to score.

Enugu Rangers will now drop to the play-offs for the CAF Confederation Cup where they will hope to reach the group stage of the second-tier CAF club competition.

El Merriekh's uprising was just starting as the team's striker Bakri Al-Madina scored two goals before the first half ended, crushing the Nigerian side's defensive strategy.

This was Rangers' second consecutive defeat having lost to Rivers United in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) game before facing Zamalek.
