Zamalek expects tough St. George test

Zamalek head coach Jorvan Vieira has warned his players about their opponent Saint George in the African Champions League.

The Egyptian will play against Saint George in Cairo on April 20 then travel to Ethiopia for the second leg.

" Saint George will be tough nut to crack , I studied them and I know they have seven players in their National team and they qualified for the last African Cup of Nations and we have to respect them" Vieira said at the press conference.

" We are unlucky because we play the first match at home and I don't like that, but we will do our best".

After the EFA delayed Zamalek's match against Al Ittihad of Alexandria the head coach has started searching for friendly matches to get his players ready for the upcoming matches in both the Egyptian League as well as the African Champions League.
