ENPPI progress after huge win



Egyptian side team ENPPI are through to the next round of the Africa Confederation Cup after crushing Burundi’s Lydia LB Academi 4-1 in the return leg clash in Cairo on Saturday.

Ahmed Raouf scored a 28 minute hat-trick to seal victory for the home side. Striker Ahmed Abd Al Zaher had opened scores in the fifth minute.

Following the win, ENPPI are through to the round of 16 where they will face Cercle de Bamao of Mali.

" I must thank my players for the win. We did not play well but reaching the round of 16 was our major aim," coach Hossam Al Badri told SuperSport.com.

"Our league was cancelled and that affected us but we have the win and that was what we wanted," he added.

"We need to put the win behind us and start preparations for Cercle de Bamao which will be another tough game.
