The chances of Nigeria’s league champions Enugu Rangers reaching the group stages of the CAF Champions League were dealt a massive blow yesterday as they lost the first leg of the second round tie 4-1 against Zamalek of Egypt in Cairo.


Former Heartland FC of Owerri striker Stanley Ohawuchi scored the first goal of the game in the eighth minute for Zamalek.

Things went from bad to worse for Rangers at the El Salam Stadium in Cairo as two quick goals in the 29th and 31st minutes respectively by Hossam Salama and Ayman Hefni seemingly meant the Flying Antelopes have an almost impossible task of overturning the situation.

The Egyptians made it 4-0 before Bobby Clement reduced the deficit seven minutes before full time to give the Nigerian representatives a fighting chance heading into the second leg.
